Meaning:Day; Occupational name for someone in charge of cattle
When your little ray of sunshine finally arrives, why not bestow a name that celebrates their endless supply of joy in your life? The gender-neutral name Day has all that and more! First and foremost, it unexpectedly means "day" and serves as a reminder that bright, sunny times will always follow the dark. In Old English, it was initially an occupational name for a dairyman, dairymaid, or someone in charge of cattle. Eventually, their hard work earned them the surname Day or Dey. This rare gem may have also emerged as a short form for David or, funny enough, Ralph. Some notable bearers include actress and singer Doris and author Clarence.
