Theodore Name Meaning

French (Théodore) and English: from the personal name Théodore (Greek Theodoros, a compound of theos ‘God’ + doron ‘gift’), which was relatively popular in the Middle Ages because of its auspicious meaning. There was considerable confusion with the Germanic personal name Theodoric (see Terry). As an American family name, it has also absorbed various other European cognates, e.g. Greek Theodorakis, Theodoropoulos.
