Origin of the name DUESSA.
Etymology of the name DUESSA.
Meaning of the baby name DUESSA.

  

DUESSA.  In Spencer's Faerie Queene, this is the name of an enemy of Una (one-ness), meaning "two-ness."  It was probably inspired by the Irish Duvessa, but derived from Latin duo "two" and esse "to be."

... "I that do seeme not I, Duessa am" (1 v 26).  Her name (L. duo two + esse to be) means two-ness, doubleness, and duplicity, in contrast to the One Truth of which she is the division and attempted destruction. (The Spenser Encyclopedia, Hamilton, 1990)
