DOROTHY.  Anglicized form of the Greek and Latin name Dorothea, meaning "gift of God."  Usage: America, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales.

Dorothy was once one of the most usual of English names.  In the days of affectation, under the House of Hanover, Dorothy fell into disuse, but was regarded as of the same old Puritan character as Abigail or Tabitha. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
