naïve, ingenuous and the origin of درويش

Hello guys,

There's a word used in Syrian Arabic dialect درويش darwiiš that means 'naïve, ingenuous' describing someone so innocent that he's naïve.
This word comes from Turkish.

I tried to look for a similar word in Turkish: darwiş, darwış, darwiç, darwıç, but did not find anything.

Does anyone have a idea of the Turkish word?
