The name is not Slavic (Russian), it is Greek. It comes from the St. Dimitrios which is a Greek Orthodox church saint. The Russians adopted the name and changed its spelling to a number of different ways. Such as Dmitry, Dmtry, Dima, Demetry, Dmetry.

In the movie "Anastasia" (1997) the male main character was named this. Voiced by John Cusack. Set in imperial Russia, the character was supposed to be a man who was a servant in the Romanov Palace who helped young Princess Anastasia escape the execution of her whole family. Years passed and Anastasia (Anya) is lost. Later Dimitri finds her and reunites her with her grandmother.

I love this name! I picture someone dark, and confident, yet mysterious and disturbed at the same time.

A famous bearer of Dimitri is a vampire from the Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. He is a member of the Volturi and is a renowned tracker. His first appearance is in New Moon, but he also reappears in Breaking Dawn.  11/24/2008

The Greek way to write this name is Dimitrios or Demetrios. This name is a strong sounding name and has been in use for ages. A very nice name.

When I see the name Dimitri I don't picture dark jaded vampires or a nickname for a handsome Greek man named Demetrius.

All I picture is a tall attractive Russian man with dark hair, blur eyes, and a bit of stubble on his face. Basically just like every Russian Spy named Dimitri on TV or in movies.

In sort I love this name and it is at the top of my list, for whatever reason it just seems warm and inviting to me. Not at all like the rough and scary characters that often sport the name.

The name DIMITRI derives from the Greek ancient religion and mythology. From the goddess Dimitra ( Δημητρα), the goddess of land, agriculture. This name itself derives from the Greek words: DI-MITRA, in Greek ΔΗ-ΜΗΤΡΑ > ΓΗ-ΜΗΤΗΡ=Mother earth.

This name is also commonly used in Georgia. In fact, Dimitri is more common there than Demetre, which is the actual Georgian form of Demetrius.

In Georgian, Dimitri is written as: დიმიტრი.

Dimitri is a a type of the ancient main male name Dimitrios. Dimitri is an ancient Greek (derives from the Goddess Δήμητρα Demetra - Dimitra, γαια => γα=δα / γη=δη => μήτηρ=μήτρα = μάνα => Δήμητηρ = μάνα γή, γαία = earth and μήτηρ = mother).
It was used as the name among the ancient Greeks, Romans and was very common in medieval and modern Greece. The high frequency of the name is due to the homonymous saint of Christianity the Holy Great Martyr Demetrios.
