It's a good name, has a nice meaning.
But it wouldn't work in Australia as the word "Dag" is slang for a messy, unkempt person. Just a heads up for Scandinavian parents living in Australia!

Dag is way too close to 'Fag'
Spare your child the pain and embarrassment. Please.
How is the word/name "Dag" too close to fag? You are very immature if this is your first association. I wonder if people even look at name meanings and try pronouncing before posting such foolish and childish comments. I get it, you're obviously American, but I'm sure you can do it if you *try*.
And fag isn't a bad word either. I hope you aren't trying to push religious views on a naming site, as that'd be stupid.
