  • "This is my daughter's name and a very popular slavic name. For those of you who know of Danica Patrick's name is how it is pronounced in the news, it's WRONG! She changed it because the American's couldn't pronounce it correctly. The "c" is not pronounced like a "K". It's just as the person explained above, the "c" is like "T'S". The reason for the varios pronouncations is because the slavic alphabet has more letters and different sounds, so if you're not slavic you probably won't pronounce it correctly, unless you were told."

  • "I have always loved my name and I get compliments on it all the time. It's unique and beautiful. My mom found the name in a baby book before she was even married and loved the name right away. She wanted her baby sister to be named Danica, but had to wait 16 years before she could name me. I have only met one or two other people with the name Danica in my life. I hate it when it is misspelled with a "k" instead of a "c", though. My aunt liked the name too, but she named her daughter Darica instead." Feb. 24, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "I set aside this name, for my 1st born, which I decieded then and there to be female... so, "Danica" back in 2004... the most ironic part to the story is that She/Mine Princess wasn't born until 2007 (7/12). At that moment, in 2004 when I made the proclamation... my wife was like... "I'm never having kids with you... Psycho..." but, 2007, she was like, I came up with the name... from the race car driver. ...Alrightee! whatEVA'! The horrific part to mine story is that, 2004... the lil' wifee and I, was watchin' "BLADE: Trinity"... and not that I thought that Danica chick to be hot... but, her persona as an femme fatal was... just so... "f->N", kick-ass! So, at the time, I figured it was all Transylvania" styled... and that it should be pronounced like "Da-nee-tza" or something exotic. That's my story... my wife is a liar!"

Not when I go to Croatian churches, communities or over seas to visit do Croatians people say it correctly. It irritates me so much that I have instructed my husband not to put it on my tomb stone.

C is like when you say LET'S, so that T'S is almost like Serbian C. The meaning of her name is the star, star that appears in the early morning; it's related to the day-in Serbian DAN /means DAY/... So, it is DANITSA pronunciation, both letters A are not any kind of A in English, it is simple A like in the words my, touch, much, fun...Accent is on the first A, not on the letter I. Letter I in Serbian is always I, like English lit, fit, meet...Thank you" Dec. 27, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Hi! My name is Danica. The correct pronounciation is Dan-ick-ah. I've had a hard time with this name when I was growing up. Teachers always called out: Dun-eekh-ah. It was embarassing. Now that I am older, people LOVE it! Everytime I tell someone my name, they tell me that it is so pretty. I like it now that i'm older, but when I was young, it was sometimes embarassing.
