User comments for Dacre
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.
Dacre is an old family name of the Watson family from West Cumberland. My son, uncle, cousin, grand father etc are all called Dacre.
We tracked its origin down to an ancestor John Watson who married a Mary Daker in the late 18th century. They called their son Daker and two generations later it had morphed to Dacre.
