    My name is Dimitris the "D" is a greek Delta which sounds like "th" in "the" or "though".It comes from Dimitrios who is a saint of the Orthodox Christian faith.

    Demetrius was a deacon in Thessaloniki. Early legends about Demetrius credit him with a military career in the Roman army, so he is also sometimes called a military martyr. He was run through with spears probably in 306 in Thessaloniki, during the Christian persecutions of emperor Maximian.

    He was extremely popular in the Middle Ages, and along with St. George, he was the patron of the Crusades.


    In English class they called me Jim.Some russian friends that I have call me Dima.In the "redneck" dialect of Greece people call me Mitsos!Lol! :p

    And yes I like my name!;)

    My first name is Mary. My initials make MPH. Named after family...I like it, but would prefer if my name was Terra, or something earthy/mythology related.

    Since my name is Mary, that means I'm: bitter, I have a lamb who goes everywhere I do, my garden has silver bells and cockleshells all lined up in a row, and strangely enough, I also gave birth to Jesus Christ...or, if you listen to the Da Vinci code, I was married to him(...I never read the Da Vinci Code, but I don't know much about Mary Magdalene..sp?), There *is* something about me, I am the Queen of Scots, and if you say my name three times to a mirror at night, I will come out and stab you until you die.

    Any other strange facts on a Mary? I know I missed many, but one gets tired of typing.

    I like my name: Jessica. I like that some people call me Jess, some Jessie(or is it just 'i', hm, I dunno, or perhaps even 'y', or sin of all sins, 'ee'...ahh the choices) and of course some Jessica. It kind of defines my relatinship with different folks. Not better or worse, just different.
