Chord Name for D chord with a Cmaj shape

Hey guys! Though I've been playing guitar and bass for MANY years, some chord names still elude me. We are doing Holy Spirit (the one where Cody Carnes starts and Kari Jobe picks up on the 2nd Verse) a full step lower than how they do it. I know that the chord chords at the beginning, in this key, are D and then G, but it really sounds like what is being played on the guitar is an open C shape moved up a step from the original C position. Hope this makes sense.

x54030 would be the fret positions (I think I have that in the right order).

I asked one of my friends who is pretty good at music theory that once, and I think he thought it might be Dadd11, and Googling that chord seems to indicate a few people who agree. It also brings about a lot of argument and disagreement too. :P

I think what it is is people cheating and playing an easier D even though it has extra notes. Probably, they frequently end up not letting the open strings ring out particularly well, which would make it just a plain D (x54x3x basically).

Eh... in certain situations it sounds really good. I wouldn't use it a lot though.

This is used in Thrice's Come All You Weary at the end of the chorus, I think. It would definitely sound wrong if you just played D.

I am still earning my theory, but in that fingering there is no A, meaning the 5th of the scale is missing. Typically an 11th or as I have more commonly seen it written, a Dadd4 would both need a 5th. If you played the 1st or 6th string at fret 5, you would have an inversion of the Dadd11 or Dadd4, because you would have the 5th. you would have to mute whichever string (1 or 6) you did not use, since that is the 2 of the scale.

as laid out above, I don't know WHAT you could call it.

Again, this is just me speaking from a very beginning theory level.

FYI, another song that uses it a lot is Paul Baloche's Hosanna, in the pre-chorus, but he does not play a fifth at all.

As illustrated, you have a D add 11. IF you were to play it 554x3x, you would have a D Major chord, A bass (or a D6/4, for you music theory folks) Muting two strings with one finger isn't hard, if you play fat-fingered, like I do.

It should technically be a Dadd9add11(no5). I often leave out the high E, which makes it a Dadd11(no5). Or sometimes play it as x54035 to add a high A, making it a Dadd11.
