Though Norse in origin, some derive Dagmar from Germanic dag maru meaning "famous day". In Polish and Slovene it is Dagmara.

This was the name of the Danish princess, the wife of Alexander III, a Russian emperor. She is more known as Maria Fedorovna.

Dagmar (Maria Fyodorovna) is also the mother of Nikolai II, the last Russian emperor.

My mother's name is "Dagmar" and she does not credit her name at all, unfortunately. It comes from the Germanic words "dag" = "day" and "mar" ("mor"?) = "big, great", so "Dagmar" would be "great day".

In the book Generation X the author has a boy named this! Pronounced DAGG-mar.

To the comment above; not Serbian :) Serbs don't do Germanic names.

Dagmar Bertino is the mail carrier in the video game "The Sims 2".

This name immediately makes me think of the blonde mail carrier in the Sims 2. I'm not sure how I feel about the name itself. On one hand, I think it's a little odd sounding (and frankly kind of ugly), on the other hand, it's got a spunkiness to it.

Dagmar Edwards, actress, born 16th November 1966 in Bruntál.

I like the sound of this name, but it does seem a bit rough on a girl.
number1212  11/8/2008
God, no matter what anyone says, I can never see this name on a girl. It's so awful, even if it were a guy name.

Pronounced DAHK-mahr in German. [noted -ed]

Pronounced DAHG-mahr in Czech and Slovak.

In Denmark it's pronounced more like 'dahl-mahr' much more feminine and regal then 'dag-mar' I think. :)

In Denmark it's pronounced DOW-mar (like how). I like it!

Damar is actually considered a male name in Norway.

Dagmar is not considered a male name in Norway.
According to the Statistics Norway (SSB), as of April 2012 there are 783 women called Dagmar in Norway; no men.

Though I can see why this name would turn many people off, I find it strangely romantic. Don't know if I'd ever name my daughter Dagmar, but I can clearly picture it for a strong, courageous (and beautiful) heroine in an epic novel. It's unique yet classic.

The youngest child in the play "I Remember Mama" is named Dagmar. It is a play about a family of Norwegian immigrants. In 9th grade, I had that role in the school play because I was petite with long blond hair. (I'm still petite, but the hair is shorter.)

Cyclone Patrick, which hit Norway on the 25th of December 2011, was named Dagmar by the Norwegian Weather Service.

Dagmar (1890-1961) was the youngest daughter of King Frederik VIII of Denmark and his wife Louise.

This is also the name of a very famous actress who was popular in the late 60's. My biological father wanted to name me Dagmar... naming an Irish-German-Italian-Bohemian child with black hair and brown eyes a Scandinavian name?
roxanne916  8/4/2012
This name is used in Iceland. [noted -ed]
― Anonymous User  6/14/2013
Yes, this name is beautiful and romantic, but I won't name my child this, cause these comments are showing how divisive this name is.
heidbz  5/20/2015
It's certainly got a strong, distinctive sound to it, and shouldn't become overused... yet I've always found it rather attractive. And it's most definitely feminine.
IEnjoyTonsOGoodNames  11/14/2015
Dag = day and mar or mare = maiden, girl so the name means "maiden of the light of day." The Bohemian noblewoman who became Queen Dagmar of Denmark was popular. She died in childbirth. In popular ballads she was revered like a saint known for goodness and mercy. She was the consort of Valdemar II. He married Bengaria next, who was known for her beauty and ambition, even though she had made him promise not to do this. So her story also has a streak of martyrdom: Valdemar was campaigning when she lay dying, and so she was seen as abandoned. And then he betrayed her memory by remarrying against her wishes. The name in Danish is pronounced 'Dao-mar' with the accent on the first syllable.

Other informal German pet names for Dagmar are Daggy or Daggi (with /g/ not /k/ sound) and, rarely, Dags or Dax – all with open ‘a’ as in English DUH.
Crissov  3/20/2016
I love this name! I think it sounds feminine and classy. I tried to get my sister to name her half Danish daughter Dagmar and she refused because she said her daughter would hate her for it. I call my niece by this name anyway, and 25 years later she always wished her mother would have named her Dagmar! She loves it, too!
