Well, those are the traditional ways of spelling Dimitri... My family has spelled it many different ways though:
Demitri, Demetri, Demetre
girls: Demitria, D'Metra, Dimetra, themitra
Just depends on what you like... and who you are.
: DEMETRIOS OR
: DEMETRIOU for a FEMALE
: THIS IS THE CORRECT GREEK TRANSLITERATION INTO ROMAN ALPHABET FROM THE GREEK ALPHABET USING CORRESPONDING LETTERS.
: TRUST ME I'M GREEK
: : Dimitris as a last name(surname)would be spelt DIMITRI or DEMETRIOU as the spelling of names changes in Greek when they are used as surnames.
: : : It is not always easy to spell Greek words in the Latin alphabet, as the Greek alphabet uses characters we're not used to.
: : : Personally, I would spell it Dimitris.
