Personal experiences with the name Dmitri: | Edit

We named our son Dmitri in 2005, wanting something "unique" for him as his dad and I have very common first names. He regularly gets compliments on his name, both from other kids as well as adults. In spite of our ethnicity being neither Greek or Russian it goes very well with his cleverness, dark hair, and mixed complexion.
