What do you think of the name Delta? Any middle name ideas? Here's what behindthename says...

DELTA
Gender: Feminine
Usage: English
Pronounced: DEL-tə
From the name of the fourth letter in the Greek alphabet, Δ. It is also the name for an island formed at the mouth of a river.

My first thought was Delta Airlines. I don't like it for a name, maybe on a pet though? Maybe a more common middle name?

I thought of the airlines too. It sounds dated to me for some reason.

Reminded me of the airlines too. Not something I'd ever use.

I kind of like it, but I don't know if I could ever bring myself to use it. DH loves it and has tried to get it to grow on me. I am from the Mississippi Delta so it has significance and that's why he likes it. I may use it for a future pet name at least.

REALLY bad association for me.. I know a drag queen whose stage name is Delta.. Totally kills it for me as a baby name! LOL

It automatically reminds me of the Greek letter... and then the airlines... and then the Delta blues... so nope, I cannot see it on a baby, child, teenager, OR adult.
