Yes. They are. Dagmar was the name she received when she was born, in Denmark. It's a very popular Danish name. But when she married future Tsar Alexander III, and changed her lutheran faith to the Orthodox one, she took the name "Maria Feodorovna", just like Alix would do later in life. Remember that she was born as Alix of Hesse, and she become Empress Alexandra Feodorovna.

Thanks !I was getting a bit confused. She was Dagmar Marie, and so Marie was used for her name in Russian. Minny (Minnie) & Minerly was used by her family as nicknames.

Yes! And Maria was her official name in Russian. However, it seems that family would call her rather "Marie" or even "Minnie", who certainly is a cute nickname.

There were often used the names which were similiar to the original or were already "in" the name and which worked with russian names. f.e. Dagmar was born as Marie Sophie Frederikke Dagmar, Louise of Baden got the name Elisaveta (as Louise is a diminuitive of Elisabeth) and Alix took the name Alexandra.
And when he shall die, // Take him and cut him out in little starres, // And he will make the Face of heaven so fine, // That all the world will be in Love with night, // And pay no worship to the Garish Sun.

I wonder where the statue is. I think it was done in Copenhagen. Even Thyra had a copy, seen in one her her home pictures.

The original statue is in Copenhagen. I posted some info on the statue in the Danish RF section way back. It's in the Carlsberg (Danish brewing company) museum, whose owner had statues made of MF and her sister Alexandra.

The Danish RF visiting Carlsberg to see the statues who are not visible in 1892.
