Comments and insights on the name Delight: | Edit

One of my name books says it is French, but I don't see how that is possible.

Personal experiences with the name Delight: | Edit

This was my mother's name, she was born in 1939. I named my daughter (1996) after her. I have encountered the name two other times. I don't know much about the origins, and I enjoy it being a rare name, but I'd like to see it come out of obscurity a little bit.

Delight was the middle name of my Great Grandmother who was born in Finland in 1935. My mother passed the name onto me when I was born in 1991.

I think it's a beautiful name! Sure beats all the names that are popular today!

Delight in song, story & screen: | Edit

Several songs use the phrase "sweet delight," but they probably mean the concept, not the name. However, apparently people started naming their girls "Afton" after mis-hearing "I laughed and she'd smile" as "Afton she'd smile" in Mandolin Rain by Bruce Hornsby, so you never know what will popularize a name!
