Meaning of the baby name DAGO.
A Spanish form of Teutonic Dag
(q.v.), meaning "day."
Dago, Tago, or
Tajo, was a Gothic
bishop of Zaragoza, whom King Chindaswintha
sent to Rome about 640, to bring home a copy of St. Gregory's Comment
on the Book of Job, which had been dedicated to a King of Spain, one
of the Suevi, but had been lost in the irruption of the Arian Goths.
The Roman clergy had been equally careless. Pope Theodorus could not
lay his hands upon the manuscript; and the search became so tedious, that
finally Bishop Tajo betook himself to prayer, and obtained a special
vision of the holy Pope Gregory himself, who directed him to the
depository of the manuscript. This same Dago (O.N. Dagr)
figures in the Landnama-bok. (History of Christian Names,
