    • 1611, Bible (Authorized, or King James, Version)[1]: Daniel 6: 16:

      "His name is Daniel Needham," my mother said. Whew! With what relief - down came my grandmother's hands! Needham was a fine old name, a founding fathers sort of name, a name you could trace back to the Massachusetts Bay Colony - if not exactly Gravesend itself. And Daniel was as Daniel as Daniel Webster, which was as good a name as a Wheelwright could wish for.
      "But he's called Dan," my mother added, bringing a slight frown to my grandmother's countenance.
  4. (rare) a female given name.
  5. A patronymic surname​.
  6. A location in the state of Wyoming in the United States (Zip Code: 83115). (From the U.S. Census Bureau 1990)

    • 1968 Venny Kontturi, Kankurikello, Gummerus, page 32:
      Mutta nimeksi ei voitu laittaa Daniel niin kuin Kusti koko ajan oli uhkaillut ja äiti vastustellut. Äiti oli sanonut tosisssaan, ettei sitä nyt sellaista karhunpalvelusta voida lapsellensa tehdä että Taneliksi ristittäisiin. Toiset mukulat tuonnempana vain nimittelisivät ja rumaa hokua veisaisivat lapselle.
      Ja Viira tiesi kyllä, mitä viisua äiti ajoi takaa vaikka ei sanonut. Sitä niin, jossa hoettiin hävyttömästi, että tint tant taneli, tanelin pallia paleli.

      Daniel hänen nimensä oli. Tietenkin. Ei hän olisi voinut olla Jani tai Sami. Janit ovat kännykkäkaupassa töissä. Samitkin ovat kännykkäkaupassa töissä, mutta esimiesasemassa. Oliko hän joku tähti?
