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".

Dagmar Bertino is the mail carrier in the video game "The Sims 2".
-- BSR  7/14/2007
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.

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.

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

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.)

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?
