Family name origins & meanings

  • Ukrainian : perhaps an occupational name from dovbysh ‘kettle drum player’.
  • Americanized spelling of German Dobisch, from a pet form of any of various Slavic personal names, notably Tobias, possibly others such as Dobeslav and Dobrobud, or perhaps in some cases an altered spelling of Czech Dobiš (see Dobis).
