According to the Bible, he was thrown into a lion’s den for refusing to worship the king, but God protected Daniel and he was not harmed by the lions. The biblical Daniel was also a visionary with the power to interpret dreams.

My sister and I have a close connection. She is pregnant with her third baby and with each pregnancy I have dreamt baby's sex. This time I dreamt a baby boy named Danny. I didnt really think the name in my dream was significant until recently she informed me that they have named baby Daniel! She felt a strong connection with this baby to Daniel and had also been dreaming about it. :)

I think it is a great name. Each time I was pregnant, it was my first choice for a boy's name; however, I have two girls so I never got to use it!

well my name is Devon, im 18 and in high school. yea alot of people say my name wrong when reading it, but im popular enough to other'students to correct them right off. one thing i love about my name is that all my friends call me Devo, like the band. i love it its catchy. i even have it tattooed really big down right side of my body. i'v met one other boy when i was younger with the'saem spelling and everything but since then no one else has my name . i like it.

My sons name is Daniel, however i've always called him Danny. So when he'started school, and he was learning how to write his name the teacher wrote Daniel and my son promply brought the paper up to her and expained that his name is Danny n't Daniel! :-) Gotta love kids!

Daniel is a classic, strong and great name. It is popular but never trendy.

Daniel is what everyone calls me. In my opinion it is the best name i could have ever possibly been given. Sometimes, people call me Dan of Danny, still, i think its the best name.

I was thinking about naming my son Daniel, but I have my doubts. I think that the name has a lot of drawbacks, such as Danielle, Dannyboy, Dano, Dan'the man, and Daniel Boone. My name is Tiffany so I know alot about ugly nicknames that come with certain names.

I love the name Daniel and two of my grandsons have that name ... one has it for a first name and the other has it for his second name! No one calls Daniel, by the name, Danny, but as he's getting older, he's being called Dan ... and he'suits it!!

Nice biblical name "Daniel"... How about second name Daniel Ethan !?

11/8/2021 6:28:12 AM

I-I like the name Daniel. I have a cousin Daniel but we call him Dan or Danny, and I even have a cousin Danielle, too. I asked Dad: "Can I call her Danny?" Dad said: "Well, maybe sometimes Aunt Rachael calls her Danny." But if It's a boy's name, It's Danny. If It's a girl name, no. Danny's unisex, but It's more popular for boys.

I was born a Daniel, went by Danny until I was sixteen, then I dropped the ny and haven't looked back. Daniel or Danny makes you sound like a six year old, no matter how old you are.

EVERYBODY LOVES DAn'tHE MAN... cuz he has the plan and he's a fabulous guy!

well my name's haley. and all i gotta say is, its not my favorite. i really like the names kayla,lindsey, or kara. i wanna change my name. i like being indifferent, so havingg a not common name would be alot better. "haley" is TOO common, and i think it got even popular-er aha lately. :PPP and what makes me veryvery maadd is when people spell it like "halle","hayley","hailey" :P anyways, thanks kbyes <3
