Meaning & Origins

From the classical Greek ethnic name meaning ‘Dorian woman’. The Dorians were one of the tribes of Greece; their name was traditionally derived from an ancestor, Dōros (son of Hellen, who gave his name to the Hellenes, i.e. the Greek people as a whole), but it is more likely that Dōros (whose name could be from dōron ‘gift’) was invented to account for a tribal name of obscure origin. In Greek mythology, Doris was a minor goddess of the sea, the consort of Nereus and the mother of his daughters, the Nereids or sea-nymphs, who numbered fifty (in some versions, more). The name was especially popular from about 1880 to about 1930, and was borne by the American film star Doris Day (b. 1924 as Doris Kappelhoff), among others.

French: status name from Old French vasseor, a short form of vavasour, a term of the feudal system for a tenant ranking immediately below a baron.Such a tenant would have been a prosperous man, and the surname may have been used for someone in his service more often than for the man himself. The term is probably derived from medieval Latin vassus vassorum ‘vassal of vassals’, i.e. vassal-inchief.
