Dagmar means "Day maiden", Dear," "peace" and "Danes joy", not just "Day maiden". But in Denmark it is more knowed as the meaning "Danes joy".

When I studied abroad in the Czech Republic, my program director’s first name was Dagmar which Was a bit masculine to my American ears. However, she went by Dasha which I always thought was lovely. I believe that was the Slavic nickname for Dagmar, which makes sense since most female Slavic nicknames end in vowels.
