About [name]Daisy[/name] [name]May[/name]:
[name]Daisy[/name] [name]Mae[/name] was (or maybe still is*) a character in L’il [name]Abner[/name] by [name]Al[/name] Capp. Her main schtick is chasing her only true love L’il [name]Abner[/name], who for the most part wanted nothing to do with her (until she finally “won” and they got married, years and years later). She is nice but, uh, not that bright, and dressed kind of scantily. I looked this up yesterday and surprised by so far today, nobody has this very good reason not to use [name]May[/name] for a middle name for [name]Daisy[/name].
Because it is an established character, the name occurs to many people to use it - a look on google images brings up for [name]Daisy[/name] [name]May[/name] in particular, porn. Because [name]Daisy[/name] “may.” Under the “original” spelling, [name]Daisy[/name] [name]Mae[/name], most of the returns are dogs and horses, as well as images of the character, and very skimpy Halloween costumes for adult women of said character. [name]Daisy[/name] [name]May[/name] with a y also brings up a lot of dogs and horses after a few pages. I found one picture of a cute chubby baby on either of those searches named [name]Daisy[/name]-[name]Mae[/name], with a hyphen.
I just wanted to clarify this, as so far, everyone has sort of a vague reason to discourage it. It’s part of American heritage even if one is not conscious of it, and sounds just like who she is even if you never heard of her before.
Anyway, I prefer [name]Delilah[/name]. I do not dislike the name [name]Daisy[/name], but it doesn’t sound like a person to me. It used to be my dog’s name, but I try to conceive it for a person, it sounds like a good nickname, or a name you can picture a photograph of an adorable little girl with that little girl twinkly eyes and innocent smile, but not like a woman’s formal name.
*I have a friend who reads comic books, who sometimes mentions to me old titles like “[name]Archie[/name]” or “[name]Annie[/name]” are still published, so I don’t know if “L’il [name]Abner[/name]” persists in comic book form as some sort of legacy with new authors. No, I don’t like comic books or my friend telling me about them.
