Other Origin(s):Greek
Meaning:Follower of Dionysius
You might have heard it through the grapevine, but Dennise is a sweet choice! A feminine name of French and Greek origin, Dennise means “follower of Dionysius.” You might recognize this figure from Greek mythology, where Dionysius is the god of wine, the grape harvest, theatre, and festivity. Using wine, music, and dance, his followers were encouraged to embrace self-confidence and go against oppressive restraints! This same message can be imparted to your little Dennise, allowing them to be whatever they want to be. A respelling of the popular moniker Denise, this version gives you all the charm of the original but with a little extra flair that Dionysius would appreciate.
