Really? For some reason I always thought you were female.
Being named William doesn't prove someone's not female, does it?

Your last name. He's making a terrible joke based on a pun of your last name.

I've had to put up with jokes regarding my last name for so long now that it fails to register any more. I should have known. :roll:

The abilities to detect sound-correspondences that might turn out upon investigation to be regular, or possible cognats, or possible loanwords, all seem to be connected to the abilities to detect and concoct puns.

No offense was meant.

What is the derivation and semantics of the surname "Dailey"?

I know "Michael" is Hebrew for "(who is) like El (God)".

I suspect "Dailey" is a pre-Norman English name, or at least a pre-Norman British name; and I suspect that the "-ley" part is also what shows up in "Stanley".

But I don't know. Do you?

(BTW you're not this guy, are you?)

Is it this? Irish, derived from the word "Dail" (meaning something sort of like "parliament)?

(Also here as a baby boy's first name.)
