Other Origin(s):French, Scottish
Meaning:Follower of Dionysus; Tropical flower Gardenia
Deni is a feminine name derived from the French Denise, meaning “follower of Dionysus.” In Greek mythology, Dionysus was the god of fertility, wine, and pleasure, and his name knights him the “Zeus of Nysa.” Deni is short, sweet, and wonderfully ear-catching, carrying a free-spirited air reminiscent of the god of fun. Deni may also stem from Denia, from the Scottish-coined Gardenia—a fragrant white tropical flower. Whether drawn to its mythological roots or foraging for a beautiful floral name, Deni seals the deal as an adorable appellation that will grow old gracefully.
