Meaning

The name “Doeg” has origins from the Torah and is derived from the Hebrew language. In the Bible, Doeg is primarily associated with a man named Doeg the Edomite, who appears in the First Book of Samuel (1 Samuel 21-22). The name “Doeg” itself is believed to mean “fearful” or “anxious” in Hebrew. It stems from the Hebrew root word “da’ag” (דָּאַג), which carries the connotation of worry, distress, or anxiety. This meaning aligns with the character of Doeg the Edomite in the Torah, as he is portrayed as a fearful and treacherous figure who informs King Saul about David’s actions, leading to disastrous consequences.
