Other Origin(s):Hebrew
Dorkas is a feminine name deeply embedded in Greek culture. Another form of Dorcas, meaning “gazelle,” Dorkas sings a sweet song of praise to baby’s good nature and little heart of gold. This extraordinary appellation is also known in the Christian Bible as the Greek translation of Tabitha, a moniker of Hebrew origin with the very same significance. Throughout the Christian New Testament, Tabitha—Dorcas or Dorkas in Greek—was held in the highest esteem for being as kindly as the creature her name symbolizes. Humble in heart and a faithful companion to those in need, Dorkas serves as a glorious muse and inspires the giver in us all.
