Daphnes come in all walks of life. There’s TV host Daphne Oz, legendary author Daphne du Maurier and singer-actress Daphne Rubin-Vega. There’s even a Daphne in Greek mythology: She was a cute nymph whose father helpfully turned her into a laurel tree to save her from an overly amorous Apollo. Daphne has been around since the 19th century but hit her peak of popularity in the 1960s. Although she keeps a low profile these days, Daphne has a lot to offer: history, mythological meaning and talent.
