Common English Forms

Does anyone know what common English forms or Name changes could be for a Ukrainian gentleman called Dmytro moving to UK or Canada? Such as John for persons named Ivan, Jack for someone called Yakim. Also any polish equivilant to the name if anyone knows.

Thanks in advance

Hi Ashleigh,

Polish: Dymitr, Demetriusz is a male given name, the version of Greek Demetrius. The meaning of the name is a "devoted to," "dedicated to, or "follower of Demeter" [Dêmêtêr - Δημητηρ or Demetra], "mother-earth", the Greek goddess of agriculture).

Cheers,
Basia

My book on Ukrainian genealogy shows that Dmytro (latin Demetrius) would not have changed much. English equivalent was usually Demetrius. Other ukrainian dimituives he might have been called Dmytryk, Dima or Mytia

Hi Ashleigh,

Another common English form for Dmytro is Metro.

Richard
