Davos Origin and Meaning

The name Davos is a boy's name .

One five-letter name, a quick suffix away from David, with two very different connotations. It's the name of a posh ski resort in Switzerland that hosts the illustrious World Economic Forum -- attended by tycoons, celebrities and heads of state -- each year. And of a trustworthy, salt-of-the-earth character in Game of Thrones, Davos Seaworth.

There are surely a few parents out there who will relish these two connections, but most will see it as too loaded for use at home.
