I'm sorry if this sounds silly but in researching a brother of the ancestor, his lists his father's name as Dove on the death certificate.  There is nothing on the tombstone.  I don't see the name anywhere else in the family and the family I believe is from Poland.  I've not seen Dove as a name before and was wondering if it is short, Yiddish, or nickname for something else.  He lists his mother as Annie which 2 out of the 4 sons have daughter's named Fannie.

Thanks,

Dov - without the e on the end is a common personal name,   It means "Bear"   In Yiddish "Berl"
I guess the 3 on the end is an endearment of Dov

I have Dov Ber in my family and he went by Bernard or Bert in the US.

Hope this helps.

Karen,
in the modern Hebrew it is rather popular name.
In the dictionary it is signed as "being re-newed or translated."
I don't think it is from the Bible.
It means "bear". In Russian it is connected sometimes to the name Michael, Misha. Look in the family may be he was mentioned as it.

Good morning,

 

‘DOV’ is a very common name and means bear in Hebrew.

"Dov" is a male name in Hebrew.  I happen to know that because Sal Mineo played Dov in the movie "Exodus."  Verified the name online.

Decades ago, I went to a doctor in Atlanta whose surname was JOVE. I think the following cut and paste is the family:

Nathan Jové, M.D. is a third generation orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Jové has followed in the footsteps of his grandfather, DrJulio Jové, and his father, Dr. Maurice Jové. Dr. Jové earned his undergraduate degree in chemistry from Emory University. He received his medical degree from Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia ...

Is it possible the "D" in DOVE was really a "J" in JOVE? By the way, there is an acute accent over the "E", making the pronunciation "HOVAY".

Good luck with your research.

As others have said, the name is Dov, frequently Dov Ber. Look for Berko in Russian Revision Lists. In Yiddish, Berel. Americanized to Bernard, Barnet, Barney.

Dov is a fairly common Hebrew name.  It means bear and sometimes there is a bear on the individuals's matzevah (gravestone) 
The Yiddish equivalent is Baer.

My great great great grandmother, Kitty Millingen (nee Solomons) died in London in 1835. Her Hebrew name is Gila bat reb Dov according to Hambro Synagogue burial register.

I have been told that Kitty is the daughter of Mr David Solomons so the English name for Dov is David.
