Meaning:beloved; great; to shine
Beloved is a gender-neutral name of Welsh and Japanese origins. A shortened form of Dafydd—the Welsh form of David—it translates to “beloved,” and is a short, sweet way to remind baby of how high you hold them. If you want to make sure they hold themselves just as high, Dai also means “great” and “to shine.” As baby carves their own paths and hones their talents, the name Dai will remind them to never dim their light.
