Meaning:follower of Demeter
Demetrius, a Greek boy's name, means "follower of Demeter," who was the Greek goddess of corn and harvest. Demeter, Persephone's mother, would disappear every year when her daughter had to stay in the underworld, putting an end to growth and the harvest and bringing about the winter months before spring returns. Baby is sure to bring a whole new host of emotions into your life but, like after every winter, there'll always be something to smile about.
