Daniel is one of the few Old Testament names to be rock-solid American classics. It was a top hit even back when Jacob and Joshua were considered ancient relics. As a result, Daniel sounds less tied to its biblical roots and more grounded in the modern world. It's friendly, handsome and universally liked.
