According to the language of flowers, a daisy symbolizes innocence and purity, traits that parents can relate to when it comes to their baby. A daisy means “day’s eye” (from Old English’s “daegeseage”) because the petals open during the day revealing its yellow centers and then close at night. Daisy, with its happy, fresh image, was a celebrated girls' name starting in the 19th century, when other flowers (violet, lily, rose, magnolia) were also doing double duty as given names. Daisy grew on actors Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis, who bestowed the name on their daughter in 2016.
