Meaning:Laurel tree
Daphine is a variation of the always-charming Greek name Daphne. You can trace this girl's name back to the nymph Daphne, a figure from Greek mythology who was transformed into a laurel tree by her father to escape the persistent Apollo's attention. Although this tale gives the name a storied, intriguing feel, its meaning of "laurel tree" ties it to the idea of victory and achievements. In Ancient Greece, laurel branches were commonly woven together as a way to crown the winner of sporting events and games, and is today a symbol of success and excellence. Your little Daphine can always hold their head high, and see their striking name as their crown jewel.
