  • Dora (given name)
Dora (case study)

Dora is the pseudonym given by Sigmund Freud to a patient whom he diagnosed with hysteria, and treated for about eleven weeks in 1900. Her most manifest hysterical symptom was aphonia, or loss of voice. The patient's real name was Ida Bauer (1882–1945); her brother Otto Bauer was a leading member of the Austromarxism movement.

Freud published a case study about Dora, Fragments of an Analysis of a Case of Hysteria (1905 [1901], Standard Edition Vol. 7, pp. 1–122; ), the first, and subsequently the most controversial, of his published case-studies.

Dora (given name)

Dora is a female name of Greek origin being a shortened form or derived from Dorothea ( Dorothy), Theodora meaning "Gift" or in its full form "God's Gift", from , doron, "gift" + , theos, "god". The name Dora can also be a short form of Isadora, Isidora and other such compound names. The earliest form of the word doron is the Mycenaean Greek , do-ra, meaning "gifts", written in the Linear B syllabic script, but it is not an anthroponym, it is only the plural of said word; on the other hand, the names Theodora and Amphidora are attested in Linear B as , te-o-do-ra, and , a-pi-do-ra, respectively. The masculine counterpart of the latter, i.e. Amphidoros, is also found: , a-pi-do-ro.

In the Russian language, Dora can be a diminutive of the male first name Agafodor.
