    I enjoy Daphne. There's something floral and sweet about it, slightly clunky feeling but also on trend

    It’s very pretty! Familiar but uncommon.

    I like it, I agree with what the previous posters have stated. It's a lovely name and it's very pretty.

    I've known one person named Daphne, and it's made a great impression on me! It's a really great name.

    I have positive associations w/the name...it's classical, has French-chic overtones, & is familiar w/o being super popular.

    Personally, I'm not a fan. It reminds me of scooby doo, but also makes me think of a lisp for some reason. Maybe that's Daphne Duck

    I've loved the name Daphne ever since I was a child. I love the sound and meaning, and it's a name that is familiar to everyone without being overly common. Plus, it reminds me of Daphne Caruana Galizia, who was a really courageous and inspiring woman.

    Daphne has been slowly growing on me too. I like the vintage feel, but there is something stopping from loving it completely. I’m not sure what it is, but I have noticed it in a few birth announcements recently and I am enjoying it.
