I cannot agree entirely with Menke.

Please see Modest in this database. It is explained there that Desha (Desja) can be a pet female name coming from Modest.

I could also suppose that Desha is a pet name for Nadezhda. (Also see the link, please.)

I think that in Russian, Desha could actually be a pet name for any female name having a stressed -De- in it.
