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.

Actually, there is only one spelling of it in Russian, it's just when it was transcribed into English, it can be done so a number of different ways.

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 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.
