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

  

THEODORE.  English and French (Théodore).  From Latin Theodorus (q.v.), meaning "divine gift."

... the French probably got it from a church in Rome dedicated to Saint Teodoro.
    In England, however, the Theodores are a recent introduction.  They seem only to have been really hereditary in Wales, Greece, and Venice.  By Greece is also meant all those Greco-Slavonic countries that received their nomenclature from Constantinople, in especial Russia, where the th is exchanged for ph, so as to produce the word Feodor; and the Germans, receiving it again, spell it Pheodor. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
