The name Dorian is a name given to both girls and boys. Its origin lies in the Greek and it means something like "descendant of Dorus". In Greek mythology Dorus was the name of Hellen's son who is credited with having founded the Diorian nation. There are another two characters called Dorus in Greek mythology. The name Dorian has six different variations including Dorian, Dorrien, Dore, Dorien, Dorion and Dorryen. The name is generally pronounced as "DOR-ee-en".

There is also the name of an ethnic group in Greek known as the Dorian Greeks. The ancient Greeks believed that they belonged to one of the four ethnic groups, one of which was the Dorian. Traditionally they were believed to belong to the Greece's north eastern parts.
