- Personal experiences with the name Danial
To most, Danial is a boys name. When my parents decided to name me, they could not find the correct spelling for Danielle. For my entire school career, every teacher I had started off thinking I was a boy. They would call for Dan or Danny. When they found out I was a girl, they would asked me how my name was spelled. I'm in my 30's now, and still sometimes people get confused. They're expecting a male for an interview and I show up. My parents did tell me that I could change it, but I love being different.
