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.
189th in the U.S.
Northern English: habitational name from any of various places so called from Old English hramsa ‘wild garlic’ (or possibly the genitive case of the Old English byname Ram(m) ‘ram’) + denu ‘valley’. There are villages so named in Essex, Kent, Oxfordshire, and Warwickshire, but the surname is most common in Yorkshire, where there are several minor places so named, Ramsden in the parish of Kirkburton being a well-recorded instance.
