As someone who has the name Dorotea, I may say that it is truly a beautiful name with a beautiful meaning, however Dorotea is a Greek name meaning 'gift of god' and in English often mispronounced- people pronounce it as Dorothy which is kind of annoying but the name is rare to find so I don't mind.

Dorotea is the Italian (and Spanish) form of Latin Dorothea, known to mean "Gift of God." Also the Scandinavian form of Latin Dorothea, meaning, as well, "Gift of God".

Wow, what a great name! I much prefer it to Dorothy, I think Dorotea is just so spunky, yet old world classy. While I'm not a fan of Dorothea, I would definitely consider Dorotea for a future daughter.

There is a male form, Doroteo, and Pancho Villa had it before he changed his name to Pancho Villa. I don't think that would work very well though!
