There are various tales about how Soddy and Daisy were named. One maintains Soddy is an anglicization of the Indian “Tsati” meaning sipping place. With Soddy Lake, the many creeks and streams, this could be true. A second states that Welch inhabitants corrupted the name of William Sodder’s Trading Post to “Soddy.” The Community of Daisy was named after Daisy Parks, daughter of Thomas Parks, who was the vice-president of the Tabler-Clendys Coal Company. Both Daisy and Soddy were thriving coal mining communities until the 1930's. A hosiery mill, turpentine plant, several pottery and tile kilns were active in Soddy and Daisy during the same period. In April 1969, the communities of Soddy and Daisy, extending for about 9 miles along U.S. 27, were incorporated.
