Daisy is a feminine name of British origin, so often synonymous with purity and innocence. Associated with the cheerful flower, Daisy comes from the Old English word dægeseage which means "day's eye." Much like the beloved bloom, it's a name that embraces the sweetest elements of daylight, unfurling itself to the sun's rays. Daisy also has history as being a nickname for the French and Greek name Margaret, meaning "pearl." Captivating in its simplicity, it's no wonder Daisy has inspired so many spirited, mesmerizing characters, from Henry James's Daisy Miller to the central figure of The Great Gatsby.
