JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Any insight on the first name "Dovrish?" #general

Lauren Hirsch <lauren.t.hirsch.c95@...>

I just found out that my maternal grandmother's Jewish name was Dovrish
(her English name was Dorothy). As I am pregnant and would like to name a
child after her, I am interested in its derivation, but I can't find it on
any lists of Jewish names. I assume it's Yiddish, but what does it mean,
and what are its Hebrew and English counterparts? Everybody on my
mother's side who would know has passed away.

Thanks for any help.
