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!

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.

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.
