Dag Origin and Meaning

The name Dag is a boy's name of Scandinavian origin meaning "daylight".

Norse god who's the son of light plus historic diplomat Dag Hammarskjöld and author Dag Solstad combine to boost this Nordic name's appeal, but this could be difficult in English-speaking countries where the obvious tease will be "daggy Dag."
