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

  

DOROTHEOS (Δωρόθεος).  Ancient Greek name meaning "gift of God," from doros "gift" and theos "a deity, a god." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).  The Latin is Dorotheus.

... The number of stems used for Aryan personal names seems to have been limited, and, though the general rule of the language was that the prefixed word qualified the second one, as Theodorus or Theodore means God-gift (gift from God), yet, when we meet with the same elements reversed in the personal names, as Dorotheos or Dorothy (Gift-God), we must conclude that, latterly at least, these elements were welded together without high regard to the resulting meaning. (Personal Names and Surnames, Macbain, 1895)
