I don't understand your question, I think I was very clear... Anyway I am repeating that part:

...It derives from the Greek word "dexiteros", a poetic form of the word "dexios", meaning right-handed, fortunate, skilled. The Latin word "dexter" derives from the Greek "dexiteros".
("A Greek-English Lexicon", Liddell and Scott, "Lexicon of the ancient Greek Language", I. Stamatakos, "Lexicon of the Latin Language", S. Koumanoudes

Of course Dexter means "right-handed, fortunate, skilled"!

"Until the day that an ancient inscription will be found with the name "Alexandrovski" written on it instead of "Alexander", true Macedonia and true Macedonians will remain Greek, as they always were."
