This is the name of Rachel's female servant. See how you translated this name in Genesis 29:29.

bore Jacob a son

"gave birth to a son for Jacob"

"Rachel gave him the name"

Translators may also add a footnote that says "The name Dan means 'he judged.'" (See: rc://en/ta/man/translate/translate-names)
