I love this! It has a Russian charm to it that can be used internationally.
It's pronounced DAW-sha though, not dash-uh
This is the name of a character from Shannon Hale's book, 'River Fingers', so unfortunately, I could never use it, but it is very gentle and distinct, uncommon, yet not unusual.
I knew a girl with this name from dance. She was really pretty. She pronounced it daw-sh-uh, not dash-uh.
This reminds me of a nickname for the urban legend name, La-a (Ladasha).
