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.

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.

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.
