My sisters name is Darian and I was always so jealous that she had such a unique name (mines Alison). We always call her 'D' and her friends used to call her DQ (Dairy Queen).
My name is Darian and I've loved it my whole life. I got "D" and "Dairy Queen" as well as the less flattering "Derrière". It's rare to meet another female Darian.
