"my name is delaney and i like it no one can make mean nicknames out of it. the only thing is that every single teacher or doctor or other person having to read my name off of paper has always pronounced it ?deLAWNey? instead of ?deLANEy?. three other delaneys go to my school and we all pronounce it the same way but it?s pretty unique other than that."

"My baby girl is Delaney Ann, and I knew from a very young age, that if I ever had a daughter it would be her name. Fortunately my husband fell in love with it right away, too.
I originally encountered a variant spelling when I was younger, because my best friend at the time had a baby sister named Delainey.
We call our little one Laneybug, Laneybird, Laneybutt, or Laney Ann. When she was first born her daddy would call her "Delibird" sometimes." Aug. 8, 2018:
"I am 12 and this is my name and I have met three others. Only one with the same spelling. My parents call me Laney all the time!! Love the name because of how i=diffrent it is." Feb. 8, 2018:
"My name is Delaney and it's a hassle in school. I have been given alternate pronunciations and spellings, but it makes me unique. I always loved being the only Delaney in school, but recently there's been 2 other Delaneys coming up in the middle school. So, now I have to clarify sometimes which Delaney is being talked about. It's fun having a unique name." Jan. 7, 2017:
"My 18 year old daughter is named Delaney! The moment I saw the name in a baby name book I knew that it was THE name! We've met a couple other Delaneys but they've all been younger. She gets so many compliments on her name." Aug. 20, 2016:

"My name is Delaney. I'm 14. I've never met another person with my name but recently this name is becoming popular and I really don't like that. I read it's the 249th most popular girl name for 2014. That's pretty far off from popular but I really love having a unique name because I'm pretty different too and I don't want this to change." Dec. 10, 2014:

"I love that name! I think Delaney is a beautiful name, but at first i didn't like it. But I've grown into it. I think Delaney is a females name not a males.I love the name because it is unique like my mom says. Like on key chains and things they never have the name Delaney! it makes me a little upset but, its no the end of the world! Lol. I also like the name because Martina Mcbride's daughter's name is Delaney. It makes me feel special because there are only like two Delaneys at my school. And i have tons of nick names too, like, Laney, Laney lou, Laney Bug, and other names. I advise this name because it will make your child feel unique and one of a kind! And it is quite a beautiful name1" Jul. 13, 2013:

At her birthday party 2 years ago, there was another Delaney having her birthday party in the same place at the same time - they were born on the same day, but the other Delaney was 3 years younger than mine.
