Last name origins & meanings:

  1. English: habitational name from either of two places, one in South Yorkshire (formerly in Derbyshire) and the other near Hereford. The former gets its name from Old English dor ‘door’, used of a pass between hills; the latter from a Celtic river name of the same origin as Dover 1. In some cases, the name may be topographic, from Middle English dore ‘gate’.
  2. Irish: in County Limerick a reduced Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Doghair ‘descendant of Doghar’, a byname meaning ‘sadness’; alternatively, according to MacLysaght, it could be from De Hóir, a name of Norman origin. Outside Limerick it may be from French Doré (see below).
  3. French (Doré): nickname from Old French doré ‘golden’, past participle of dorer ‘to gild’ (Late Latin deaurare, from aurum ‘gold’), denoting either a goldsmith or someone with bright golden hair.
  4. Hungarian (Dőre): nickname from dőre ‘stupid’, ‘useless’ ‘mad’.
