Delphine


Évelyne Brochu as Delphine Cormier in "Orphan Black"



Origin: Latin
Meaning: "of Delphi"
Gender: Feminine
Pronunciation: del-FEEN

I have recently starting watching Orphan Black and one of the characters is Delphine Cormier. The name Delphine is the French form of the Latin Delphina meaning "of Delphi". Delphi is an archeological site and town in Greece, the name of which is possibly related to the Greek delphis meaning "dophin".

   Related names:

Delfina - Italian, Spanish
Delphina - Late Roman
Delphinus - Late Roman (m)


   Name Days:

France: November 26
