    no context, just interested is there such a word technically, and whether it would make sense.

    No, there is no such word. The word "daring" can also be used as a noun, so you'd use that word instead of the one you made up.. Alternatively "boldness" or "courage".


    daring

    Noun
    daring (usually uncountable; plural darings)

    After looking at these words with -ness from scrabble finder, I think after a while dareness or daringness would start to look ok! Words that end with Ness, words ending with Ness

    Actually, it seems daringness is a word. At least to some people. Acceptable to scrabble finder as a word.

    Yes, dareness doesn't technically exist. Daring and daringness are better, and exist. Bit too formal words for my taste. I'd use slang words like spunk instead.

    Oh, and derring-do is also a cool term

    derring do
    daring action; boldness, great courage

    отчаянная храбрость, безрассудство
