Gender: F Meaning of Damaris: "dominant woman" Origin of Damaris: Greek

In the New Testament, Damaris was an Athenian woman converted to Christianity by St. Paul. Known for her charitable work, her name was a favorite among the Puritans. Having slid off the bottom of the Top 1000 in 2012, Damaris might be deserving of more attention by parents in search of a New Testament name that is unusual but accessible, especially since girls' names ending in 's' are coming back into fashion.

Damaris is a supermodel name via Damaris Lewis; it's currently a Top 100 name in Chile.
