  • "My name is Danielle and I love it! It sounds really beautiful with a french accent. It's somewhat unique yet not unheard of. People don't normally spell my name wrong- but then a again I go by Dani. See that's the brilliance of Danielle- it opens up a window full of nicknames. Elle, Ellie,Dani,Ann(I've heard it before!)

  • "Ha ha I don't get why people can't read Danielle correctly sometimes. It just makes me think society can be very stupid. =) I'm proud of my name though! =D" Dec. 14, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name! Danielle is common enough so that you won't get people staring at you funnily when you say your name but unique enough so that you won't run into a million other Danielle's in school or something. The spelling, especially for countries who don't natively speak English, is horrendous. They constantly write it "Daniel" which is in fact, the male version of this name. Apart from the spelling though, the name is beautiful and when said correctly (none of this Danny-Yell business, please) it sounds REALLY nice. And while I'm not one for nicknames (though I have been called Dan and Dani occasionally) it's got great potential. So yeah, the Danielle's ROCK! :D" Sep. 10, 2009: Report as inappropriate

My son's middle name will be Dublin, but it's not really human. My daughter's middle name will be Prairie, but that's not human either." Dec. 20, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "Danielle is my middle or second name in different culturs. My name is always misspelled in it's masculine spelling especially when Starbucks employees write it down on cups. Another common thing that mistakes me as a boy when my friends and family would tell stories about me to another person they would always think that i'm a guy, they always get surprise when they see that I'm actually a girl. Or one time my bestfriend never shuts up about me to her boyfriend that he got jealous because "she's bff with a guy." Same dude, i haven't even met you. I go by Nielle/Nyel in college becuase there are tons of Danielles in my department and we also shared the same room for teambuilding. Oh the confusion!" Jul. 13, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is also Danyelle.. just spelled different. I love my name but the spelling, not so much. I agree it is very common but still sounds beautiful 😍" Dec. 7, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "The irony: Danielle, judged by God, is a porny name. Do not look for feminine diminutives on the internet without safe search activated. I'm okay with it as a name. I've only met one other person with the same name (different spelling), yet everyone is familiar with it enough to remember how to pronounce it, while it's not so YooNeeK that people think that the epidural went to Mom's head. Because it's clearly Old World with Hebrew bona fides, it also reeks of middle class or upper middle class; privilege for me when I send my work out or try to get a job, super crappy comment on our social values."

  • "My name is Danielle and I personally love my name. I was born in 1966 and that was not a very common name back then, especially here in the states. Growing up when someone called out my name I knew that they were talking to me. Today the name has grown in popularity and I no longer pay any attention when I hear someone speak out the name. My grandma always called me Danigirl growing up and I really enjoyed that nick name. Sometimes I am referred to as D and Dani and "It's all good"." Aug. 14, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Danielle, sometimes I feel like it's boring, or common but for the most part it's not a bad name. My friends call me Yelly just for fun and my mom calls me Danyellow!

I think it is a pretty name and have grown to love it. It's Dan-yell, not Din-yell or Danny-yell, please!

  • "I enjoy my name. I wish it was a little less common, but I think it's best attribute is that it really spans a lot of cultures.
