Aw so cute. It means Gift of God or Dorian woman.
This name can also be MASCULINE as a diminutive of DORIAN, THEODORE or ISIDORE, making it UNISEX.

In the USA, 14 boys were named DORY in 1972.

In some other countries, it's more often used as a MASCULINE name.

A notable MASCULINE name bearer is an American musician: Dory Lobel.

Dory Lobel is an American musician, songwriter, composer and producer. Beginning his professional music career at the age of 18, Lobel is perhaps best known for playing in the house band for NBC's The Voice, and for performing with multi-platinum recording artists including Backstreet Boys, Colbie Caillat, Jesse McCartney, Hilary Duff and Enrique Iglesias.
A girl with this name would definitely be teased because of Finding Nemo and Finding Dory.
I definitely agree with @kayisforkeen.
Your daughter will be teased with this name. Try something different. Maybe Dorothy, Doris, Doreen, or something like that. Me and my brothers used to have a blue parrot fish who we named Dory after Finding Nemo because it was one of my favorite movies. The sad part was my brother fed it too much and it died. We were 3 years old.
Also the name given to the blue tang, also known as a palette surgeonfish, in the Finding Nemo and Finding Dory animated films made by Pixar.
I just bought a blue female Betta fish... guess what I'm calling her.
Pretty and cute, but a bit youthful in sound. The names Dora and Doris are more mature. I hate Dorothy and Doreen, however, so I'd only use Dora or Doris instead of Dory as the real name of the child and perhaps call her Dory.
In the French version of Finding Nemo, Dory is called Doris, and I think that it would be acceptable to have Dory as a nickname for just that.
I guess this is a little weird but although I like this name it makes me think of someone with short term memory loss. And not just because of the fish in finding Nemo. Long before that movie came out I had a friend named Dory who was a spaz simply because she coudn't remember anything.
Dory is a fish in Finding Nemo.
