Mystery Monday: Daghared

Every Monday we will post an entry that hasn’t yet been published with a view towards harnessing the collective onomastic power of the internet. If you have any thoughts about the name’s origin, other variants it might be related to, other examples of its use, etc., please share them in the comments! If you wish to browse other Mystery Monday names, there is an index.
The prototheme here is clearly Old Saxon, Old Dutch dag, Old High German tag ‘day’, but the deuterotheme is uncertain. It is possibly Old Saxon hard, Old High German hart ‘strong, hard’, but the spelling is unusual, and we would appreciate other examples of this spelling!
