day's eye

ORIGIN:British
POPULARITY:400
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.

If you watched “Toy Story 3,” you learned that Daisy is the girl who was given a Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear, Chuckles and Big Baby dolls for Christmas, and they become her favorite toys. As a young girl, she's a bit forgetful, and one day she goes on a picnic with her family and accidentally leaves all the toys behind. Daisy eventually gets another Lotso, which makes the bear angry, confused and jealous.
