Meaning:God's gift
Theodore is a masculine name of Greek origin. A moniker of presidential proportions, its translation is no less prestigious. Stemming from the Greek words Theos, meaning "god-given", and dōron, meaning "gift”, Theodore stands as "a gift from God." This divine declaration is, of course, most widely associated with Theodore Roosevelt, whose far-reaching legacy includes the 'teddy bear.' Destined to be a beacon for many affectionate nicknames—little Theo, Ted, or Teddy to name a few—will undoubtedly find easy solace in the path of pure intentions.
