Meaning:sorrows
Delores is a feminine name of Spanish origin. This name — more commonly famous for the role of Delores Umbridge in the Harry Potter series — takes on a lot of different connotations. She was as quick and clever as she was cruel, and she knew precisely how to navigate the trenches of the wizarding world's politics. But movies aside, this name has a deeper meaning of "sorrows". Though that may not seem like the most inviting definition, it's worth keeping in mind that life's greatest joys can only be experienced when they've outshone the darkest times.
