Description: Biblical name borne by the prophet whose story is told in the Book of Daniel. He was an Israelite slave of the Assyrian king Nebuchandnezzar, who obtained great favour through his skill in interpreting dreams and the ‘writing on the wall’ at the feast held by Nebuchandnezzar’s son Belshazzar. His enemies managed to get him cast into a lion’ den, but he was saved by God. This was a favourite tale in the Middle Ages, often represented in miracle plays. The name has been popular since the 16th century and particularly since the 1980s. Famous bearers include Daniel Beddingfield (singer), Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter actor) and Daniel Bassett (musician).
