Actually the old Celtic word "Dacre", derives from the ancient Greek word "Dakry" (pronounced "Dakree" in Greek). It meant "drop" in ancient Greek, it means "teardrop" in modern Greek.

I know this is historically a masculine name. However, it was my grandmother's middle name, and is now my daughter's first name.

Pronounced DAY-ker (to rhyme with 'maker').
This was once most common in the north of England especially Yorkshire and parts of Lancashire. A family surname for me, I must admit I'm sad to see it being used on a girl. I had better not tell my grandmother. :)

Dacre Stoker is the great-grandnephew of Bram, the author of Dracula. Charlotte Dacre (born Charlotte King) wrote early Gothic novels, in particular Zofloya (1806).
