Dior

Dior comes from a French surname, apparently a locational name for someone who came from a Diors, Indre, in France. The name could perhaps be related to French d’or meaning “golden”. It’s also possible that it may be related to Greek dios meaning “of Zeus”, though it could also be related to PIE *dyew” (sky, heaven, god; shining). Dior is also an Old English word, also spelled deor, meaning “animal, wild beast”.

Dior is famously associated with Christian Dior, a French fashion designer.
