Demetriou Name Meaning

Greek: from the genitive case of the personal name Demetrios ‘(follower) of Demeter’, the classical goddess of fertility, whose name derives from an obscure element de, sometimes taken as a Doric equivalent of Attic ge ‘earth’ + meter ‘mother’. This name was borne by several early Christian martyrs, and its popularity in eastern Europe is largely due to the fame of a 4th-century saint executed under Diocletian. Genitive patronymics are particularly associated with Cyprus.
