Dagne, also spelled Dagny, is a girl’s name of Old Norse origin. It combines the elements dagr, meaning “day,” with nýr, meaning “new,” to mean “new day.” Like the rising sun, your little one’s arrival will signify a new beginning—not just for them, but for you, too. Choosing this rare and beautiful Scandinavian name is a lovely way to express all the hope and joy that comes with that. Though Dagne appears in Norse mythology, it fell out of use for many years before experiencing a revival in the early 20th century. In 1857, Henrik Ibsen used it in his play The Vikings of Helgeland, and in 1886 it became the name of a Swedish women’s magazine. It has since lost popularity again, but why not bring it back for your little Viking?
