Commentary

Etymology

The name Delphini is related to the name Delphina, which means "womb". It comes from the Latin boy's name Delphinus, which meant someone from Delphi, a city in Ancient Greece. This in turn may be related to Greek δελφυς (delphys) "womb" (Behind the Name).  It could also be a shortened form of the flower name delphinium, which are beautiful plants but are "toxic to humans and plants" (Wikipedia).
