Name Root:
*DžE / DHE > Gê MḗTēR > DēMḗTēR > demetria
This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Demetria (Δημήτρια)”, from “Dēmḗtēr (Δημήτηρ)”, composed of two elements: “gê (γῆ)” (Proto-Albanian / Illyrian “*dže / dhe”) (land, earth, country, soil) plus “mā́tēr ‎(μᾱ́τηρ) mḗtēr (μήτηρ) (mother, source or origin). In turn, the name means “mother-earth, of Demeter, dedicated to Demeter, son of Demeter.” Demeter is a deity of the Greek religion, daughter of Kronos and Rhea. In Roman mythology, her figure corresponds to Ceres and is also often confused with Gaia, Rhea or Cybele. The epithet with which the goddess is most frequently called, reveals the breadth and scope of her functions in Greek life at the time: she and Kore (the girl) were usually invoked as “the two goddesses (τώ θεώ),” and this definition already appears in the Linear B inscriptions of the Mycenaean era found in Pile. It is absolutely plausible that there is a connection with the cults dedicated to the two goddesses in the Minoan civilization of Crete.
