"Love it! I adopted a darling little black chi-terrier mix dog and her name was Dori. Gave her the middle name Mae. Really cute." Apr. 21, 2013:
"My name is Dori, and really I have never met - actually met- another Dori. For a long long time, I thought it had no meaning. Then a man told me it was a common name in Israel, and that in English it meant something like " being free" or " he who is free". I really, really love that meaning. However, I have never found any source confirming what this Israeli told me. When I was arounf ten I read Tolkien's the hobbit and found a dwarf called Dori. This just strengthen my nostalgia for a place that could not be - and that my heart longs for." Dec. 12, 2010:
"i love my name. i am always surprised to meet another. like many others, part of the reason i was named dori was that it was somewhat close to my great-grandmother, Dorothy, but also because it means "gift". :-)" Apr. 8, 2010:
"Like the 9/17/07 commenter, I was named after great-grandmother, Dora, but updated to Dori. I like the name, and had another Dorie (really Doreen) in my H.S. class of only 236 people. Crazy. Since then, I've met very few, and generally really like having an unusual name. Nemo did change things a little but only in a good way (people get what you're saying more easily). I have a bad habit of mumbling and some people hear "Joy."" Nov. 10, 2008:
"Until the movie "Finding Nemo" came out I had never heard my name before. I love it, and although it is not short for anything people always ask what it stands for!" Apr. 2, 2008:
"My name is Dori and I love it because it is so unique. I have met a few other Dori's in my life (I usually get a little upset that they have my name :). I was named after my great-grandmother Dora. My parents were going to name me Dora and call me Dori, but decided to just go with Dori for the name, and I'm so glad they did!" Sep. 17, 2007:
"I would totally name my daughter Dori. I love it, since I had been trying to find a name that was close to Dora, because Dora was my great-greamdma's name. I want to give my future daughter this name to carry on her heritage without having the exact same name." Apr. 14, 2007:

"My name is Dori and I was named after my late grandmother, Doris. I don't really like my name that much; it's kind of weird but I feel disrespectful to my grandmother when I admit that. If I had been a boy my mom was going to name me Dylan. I wish she would have named me Dylan anyway." Aug. 26, 2008:
