Meaning:Day; Occupational name for a person in charge of cattle
Here's to the name you never knew you needed, and yet, you've already fallen in love! As expected, the gender-neutral name Daye simply means "day," but there's a bit more to this particular story. This British pick was born as an occupational name for someone in charge of cattle. The 'da' in dairyman or dairymaid soon evolved into the common surnames Day and Dey. Today, Daye and its other forms are unsurprisingly rare. After all, it's exceptionally beautiful and awaits a one-of-a-kind baby to pull it from obscurity. Challenge accepted!
