ways to get to Daisy (besides Margaret)

Would love a creative way to get to [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] besides [name_f]Margaret[/name_f]!

I think there’s a berry who has a [name_f]Dulcinea[/name_f] “[name_f]Daisy[/name_f]”. It’s a sweet way to get to [name_f]Daisy[/name_f].
Perhaps some other D name can work? [name_f]Dolores[/name_f], [name_f]Daenerys[/name_f], [name_u]Darcy[/name_u]?

[name_f]Marguerite[/name_f]
[name_f]Margarita[/name_f]
[name_f]Margot[/name_f]/[name_f]Margaux[/name_f]

[name_f]Désirée[/name_f]
[name_f]Despina[/name_f]

I think when it comes to nicknames, there really shouldn’t be any rules. Thus, you can get to a name almost any way you want.

What are some names on your list? [name_f]Do[/name_f] you have other flower names on your list? What about other nature names? Any names that start with D or have the “ai” sound? Any names that have even a slight relationship with someone named [name_f]Daisy[/name_f]? I might call a [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] “[name_f]Daisy[/name_f]”. Might even call a [name_f]Poppy[/name_f] “[name_f]Daisy[/name_f]”. If I had a [name_f]Penelope[/name_f], the first nn in mind would be [name_f]Poppy[/name_f] and I could see myself calling out a [name_f]Daisy[/name_f]. [name_f]Anastasia[/name_f] might get “[name_f]Daisy[/name_f]” because I might call out “Stasi [name_f]Daisy[/name_f]” and eventually just drop the Stasi part. [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] might get [name_f]Daisy[/name_f]'d simply because Elizabeths have a thousand nn’s so why not [name_f]Daisy[/name_f]?

I grew up in a family where nicknames are super common and they can change easily. Half of them seem far from the original but they often make some sense when we explain the evolution from formal name to nickname. My sister is [name_f]Michelle[/name_f] and we often call her Cici. We go there from [name_u]Shelly[/name_u] to [name_u]Shell[/name_u] to Seashell to simply Sea which eventually just morphed into Cici. If the nickname makes sense to you, then go for it, even if it doesn’t seem sensible to an outsider.

Straight there. [name_m]Just[/name_m] name her [name_f]Daisy[/name_f].

My favorites are just-plain-[name_f]Daisy[/name_f] and [name_f]Marguerite[/name_f]. If those aren’t right for you, I think it helps if the name starts with a D and has an s sound in there:
[name_f]Desdemona[/name_f]
[name_f]Dulcia[/name_f]
[name_f]Dasha[/name_f]
[name_f]Delicia[/name_f]
[name_f]Delancy[/name_f]
[name_f]Dasia[/name_f]
[name_f]Drucilla[/name_f]

What about [name_u]Delaney[/name_u] or [name_u]Dana[/name_u]? [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] is not that nickname-y on it’s own though :slight_smile:
