Due for a comeback.
Just warn your Dorothy that if she ever visits Australia she'll be dubbed Doz or Dorro.

I think it's an awful old-fashioned (not-in-a-good-way) name.

Dislike Dorothy but delphine is nice.

JammieDodgem Wed 12-Oct-16 04:49:46

Oops, pressed send to soon. It was on my list for DD, but DH vetoed it. Same with Sylvia.

Dorothy is old fashioned even for 50 year olds! Awful name sorry.

It was my nan's name. she would have been in her 90s and even she hated it.

It's cute! Wizard of Oz connotations though. Going to Kansas?, there's no place like home, where's Toto...Still would use it if you like it.

In Cider with Rosie, Laurie's sister is Dorothy, nn Doth.

I like it. It's my brother's cat's name.

She gets called Dot, Dotty, Doz or Dozzer smile

I like. I like Dorothea even more. Dorothea can be Dora, Thea, Doro, Dodo (like in Moddlemarch), Dotty, Dot.
