[ 2 syll. daf-fy, da-ffy ] The baby girl name Daffy is pronounced DAEFiy †. Daffy has its origins in the English and Old Greek languages. It is used largely in the English language. The name first developed as a diminutive of Daphne, but it is today seldom used due to its association with the adjective 'daffy' ('foolish, absent-minded'), a word in use since the 19th century. Daffy Duck (1937-) is a Looney Tunes cartoon character who speaks with an exaggerated lisp.

In addition, Daffy is a variant of Daffodil (English).
