Dorothy

Dorothy (f) This Greek name, ‘gift of god,’ was suddenly
revived at the end of the nineteenth century in all English-speaking countries. It then became one of the commonest girls’ names for some thirty years, but it has been completely out of fashion since 1960. The Latinised Dorothea and the diminutive Dora were often used. Doll, Dolly, Dothy, Dot, Dotty, etc., are amongst the pet forms of the name, which is rendered in Gaelic as Diorbhàil.
