In Greek mythology, Doris (/ˈdoʊrɪs/; Δωρίς/Δωρίδος means 'bounty') may refer to two related sea divinities:

Doris from the Pergamon Zeus Altar

Doris, one of the 3,000 Oceanids, water-nymph daughters of the Titans Oceanus[1] and his sister-wife Tethys.[2] She was the mother of the Nereids[3] and Nerites[1] by the 'Old Man of the Sea' Nereus.
Doris, one of the 50 Nereids, sea-nymph daughters of the above Oceanid Doris and the sea god Nereus.[4][5] Doris and her other sisters appeared to Thetis when she cries out in sympathy for the grief of Achilles for his slain friend Patroclus.[6]
