Feminine form of the Late Greek name Δωροθεος (Dorotheos), which meant “gift of God” from Greek δωρον (doron) “gift” and θεος (theos) “god”. Dorothea was the name of two early saints, notably the 4th-century martyr Dorothea of Caesarea. It was also borne by the 13th-century Saint Dorothea of Montau, who was the patron saint of Prussia.
