Comments and insights on the name Dimitris: | Edit

The name Dimitrios (Dimitrius in Latin) is one of the oldest continuously used names in the western tradition. It comes from the Ancient Greek and is likely a contraction of the words 'ge' & 'metera' or the words for Earth and mother. Long ago, before the Olympian Gods, when proto Greek civilization began to cultivate crops and establish religion, they worshiped the grain mother goddess that later became Demeter the Olympian goddess of the harvest and of bounty. This is the masculine variation of that name. It is used by Homer, and was acculturated into early Christianity. The name was adopted by Slavic speakers after their conversion to Christianity, which has resulted in none Greek spelling variations. The 'i's are from the Greek letter Eta and are sometimes translated as 'e's in English.
