Demetrius is a character in Shakespeare's play 'Titus Andronicus'. In the play, Demetrius is the youngest son of the Gothic Queen Tamora, and is brought to Rome as the spoils of war. He and his brother Chiron rape Titus' daughter Lavinia and cut off her hands and tongue. However, she reveals their crime and Titus cooks them in a pie which is then served to their mother as punishment.
The name Demetrius when spoken in Greek (the languange it derives from) sounds charmingly masculine, proud and optimistic, yet soft and sensitive. It is my favourite male name and at this point in my life it is connected in my heart and mind with someone very special to me. Someone who bears all above characteristics and sweeps me of the ground!
This is my friend's name. He isn't Greek however. We call him Demy. I think Demetrius is a nice name but sounds a bit snooty to me.
Demetrius was also a character in the novel and 1953 film: The Robe and later a gladiator in Demetrius and the Gladiators.
I like this name, even though it does sound kinda hard to pronounce it's not too popular and sounds original.
A character in Will Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream".
