DorcasI think Dorcas is a cool name, it's scottish and definately underused. You could make it into a whole lot of different nicknames (as long as one isn't "Dorkey") and it goes with almost any last name I can think of.
Dorcas is a biblical name which means "gazelle" in Greek. It is used in place of Tabitha (Aramaic for "gazelle") in the Greek translation of the Bible. It has been popular in Scotland, because it was used to anglicize the Scottish Gaelic name De˛ridh (which means 'pilgrim'). The one girl I knew named Dorcas went by "Cass."
