    Dmitry comes from Greek Demetrius. It means "devoted to Demetra". Demetra is Greek Mother-Earth Goddess. So literally I am the paladin of Demetra

    Dmitry - Russian name. Many of Russian names come from Greek. Orthodox Church used Greek language like Catholic Church used Latin.

    I am an American, too, and I am not ashamed to give my meaning.

    Carol (French) "song".

    BTW, I wonder what Boukreev means. (you can see my other posts---I posted about pronunciation.)

    My mother's middle name was Carol. She named me after that.

    Carol
    The wise one has the power...

    Ivana:
    I have the same name - but the Northern European version, Johanna.

    It's a woman who went to the grave of Jesus, after he was resurrected. The Bible says that she was married to "a rich man". No such luck for me! Nothing else is known about her.

    Sure they do - American names are usually fun and interesting.
    Apart from the extremely weird habit of giving women surname as their Christian names. I.e. "Taylor".


    I am fascinated by the meaning of Asian names --- from Asian friends I have heard all the beautiful meanings of these names. Some would really be quite a challenge to live up to.

    Mark < Latin Marcus < Latin Mars < Old Latin Māvors

    In other words, your name is connected to the planet Mars and the Roman god of war of the same name.
