    I love both. I would pick Daphne for a FN and Delphine for a MN. I find it hard to see someone with the name Delphine--what's her personality like? Is it wearable?--but the idea of pushing my beloved Daphne into the MN spot sort of kills me inside.

    I think both are cool. Daphne feels more lively, Delphine more romantic.

    This exactly! I love them both, but Delphine is harder to wear/imagine where as Daphne is so sunny and sweet it gets the edge, but only slightly. Plus I can't help but think of Dolphins for Delphine, though that's not necessarily a bad thing.
    Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot
