It first appeared on the baby name lists in the 1930s and reached its peak from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s. It's still an attractive, European-flavored name with a high likability factor owing to "Orange Is the New Black" star Danielle Johnson and "The Flash" star Danielle Panabaker. NEXT: Well-known Danielles.
The name was invented by the German poet Johann Christoph Schüler (1735–1805). He called his daughter Daniela because he believed that this was a Hebrew word for "God has granted." As well as being used as a given name, Daniel also stands for "Gift of God".
Schüler's son renamed the girl Daniel after her father because he did not want to confuse her with another child named Daniel who lived with them. Thus, the name became known under its original spelling again.
In English-speaking countries, the name is most commonly used among Catholics, especially Irish Catholics. It was originally adopted by Protestants in America who felt it would make a good addition to their own list of biblical names. For example, one of the first Daniel Dales was a governor of Connecticut; another was a minister at Princeton University. In France, the name is popular among Jews and Christians alike. It even has its own translation into French: "gift of God".
In Italy, the name is popular among immigrants from South America. They often call their children Dani or Danny.
Danielle first appeared on the US Top 1000 chart in 1938. (Daniela did not show up until 1973). Although the name languished for the first 20 years or so, Danielle began to climb the popularity rankings in the 1960s (advancing almost 600 positions in that decade alone). It is now among the top 100 names for girls.
Danielle is a common English given name that comes from the Hebrew Daniel. It was adopted into English culture during the 11th century when the Biblical figure of the same name became popular among Christians.
The name was also used as an anglicization of the Gaelic name Dáire, which was originally a male name derived from the Hebrew David. The -aine ending was added to indicate a female name. Today, the only remaining use of Dáire is as an Anglicized form of the surname Duffy.
This year, 15669 newborns were named Danielle, accounting for 0.4559 percent of all baby girls born in the United States. The name's popularity has never risen over 0.479 percent. This year alone, about 17000 girls were given the name Danielle. Names that you might think would be popular such as Emily and Emma do not seem to have much impact either positively or negatively on how often they appear in the data.
Daniel was once considered a more popular name for babies but it has been declining in popularity since then. Today, Daniel is ranked between Esther and Elizabeth as the 12th most common name for girls - not enough people are choosing it to make any real difference for the overall ranking.
Dani was previously the most common version of the name Danielle but it was overtaken by another form of this name several years ago. Currently, there are also records of others using variations of the spelling Daniella, Dana, Danna and Dena.
Danish names follow the rule of two names per person. So if your daughter wants to take her name again after age 18, she can choose another version of the name (which can be found by searching "other names" on Wikipedia). For example, if Dani first took the name Laura when she was 10, she could later adopt her mother's maiden name as a second name - perhaps Laura "Danica" Bartosz.
People with the name Danielle are 78.7 percent White, 5.9 percent Hispanic origin, 11.9 percent Black, 1.4 percent Asian or Pacific Islander, 1.5 percent Two or More Races, and 0.6 percent American Indian or Alaskan Native. The remaining 8.3 percent of names are unknown.
White people named their children after famous people from English history, such as Daniel Boone, William Bradford, Elizabeth Freeman, George Washington, and Henry Ware. These individuals all have significance in the history of America. They contributed to the formation of new states by helping to settle down newly acquired territories, building roads, and establishing schools.
As for other races, Asians named their children after religious figures, such as Daniel, David, Elizabeth, Francis, John, Joseph, Mary, Michael, Peter, and Stephen. Americans also name their children after people who are important in their own history, such as Daniel Boone, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln.
In conclusion, Danielle is a white name because it is mostly used by white people. It could be found in both ethnic American names and foreign names. However, foreign names tend to be more diverse than ethnic American names.
