Note
Compound: see also Icel. dýr 'animal'. Two etymologies for the first element: (i) borrowed from OE dā f. 'female fallow deer', cf. ODa. dā, OSw. dā 'female fallow deer' (SEO); or (ii) inherited from an "Anglo-Norse" dajō-, dajōn- f. ‘female animal, (fallow) deer’, "possibly related to *dajjan- v. 'to suckle': E doe has a broad semantic range, referring to a wide variety of female animals, e.g. deer, goat, rabbit, hare, and thus supports an original meaning 'suckling animal'.” (GK)
