Hi, my name is Paige. My middle name is Dorthe, which is the danish form of Dorothy. My middle name was i honour of the danish midwife that delivered me. I have always wondered what it meant. Now i know!
Thank you ever so much - this website has been such a great help, to me and my mum!!!!!!

All the way through high school, I hated my name. I was the only one in school named Dorothy, and was constantly teased about "The Wizard of Oz." I was named after my grandmother, so I never knew the meaning of it. Now that I know that I'm a "gift from God," I'm proud to be a Dorothy.
