Personal experiences with the name Danika: | Edit

Our beautiful baby girl, now almost 2 years old is Danika Marie. We call her Dani for short.
Our baby girl, 5 m., is named Danika Grace. We call her Dani, Danci, or Gracie. :)

My daughter is 11 and her name is Danika. I chose this name because it sounds very strong and athletic to me, as well as intelligent and beautiful. It's definitely not a prissy name like Alyssa or something of that nature, while still being very feminine. She plays soccer, and most of her team calls her DK, which was our nickname for her since she was little because her middle name is Katherine. I would have called her Dani,but her daddy's name is Daniel, and I call him Danny. I also like names that end it the -ica sound in general, such as Erica or Jessica, but those names have become a little too popular.

I have a 6 year old daughter named Danika Lauren. She is smart, athletic and very bossy! We call her Dee for short but her friend's call her Dani. I chose the name because I didn't want something too girly, but at the same time I wanted it to be feminine.
