(*daga beraht) (dai)

The origin of this name is still today quite uncertain. The theories include: 1) Shortened form of original personal compound names such as "Daegberht", from the Old High German name “Dagaperht”, composed of two elements: “*daga” (day) plus “beraht” (light, bright, shining). 2) The medieval term “Dai”, a Welsh nickname form of the male given name David, one of the many names from the bible introduced into Europe by returning Crusaders of the 12th century.
