The name Fedoroff is a patronymic surname formed by adding one of the many Russian suffixes, such as "-ov" and "-ovic" to the personal name Feder. The name most likely comes from the Russian "feodor," meaning "God's gift." It is also possible that this name was derived from the Old English "feder," which meant feather. Perhaps the name was first born by someone whose occupation involved feathers.
