User comments for Dorcas (Meaning / History Only)

I personally see nothing wrong with the name Dorcas. Dorcas is the same name as Tabitha.

The Greek form of Tabitha is as follows: ταβιθα

This is the same name as Dorcas. The Greek form of Dorcas is as follows: δορκας

Both names mean gazelle, which is sometimes called a roe deer. This is a small red deer which lives in the Holy Land. There is a gazelle known as the Dorcas gazelle which was named after the Disciple Dorcas or Tabitha, who is mentioned in Acts 9.

The Hebrew word for Gazelle is as follows: עופר
