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!

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!
