From Greek dorkas ‘doe, gazelle’. It was not used as a personal name by the ancient Greeks, but is offered in the Bible as an interpretation of the Aramaic name Tabitha (Acts 9:36), and was taken up by the early Christians. It was much used among the Puritans in the 16th century, and has remained in occasional use ever since, having also been used as an Anglicized form of Gaelic Deòiridh.
