User comments for Delores
Delores origin is French. It is the feminine of Delore. Delore pronounced with long E sound. Meaning De (the) lore (story). I.E. the story teller. I have five French generations with that as a first name - Delore male; female - Delores. It does not mean sorrow or pain or suffering.

Delores cannot mean "storyteller" in French because the French for "story" is recit and French for "storyteller" is conteur. Lore is Middle English and derived from the Old English word lar. On the other hand Delores in Spanish means "pain" and the name Delores is short for La Virgen María de los Dolores, "Virgin Mary of Sorrows."
