Etymology[edit]

The second half is generally believed to be μήτηρ (mḗtēr, mother). The first element is classically explained as an archaic form of γῆ (, earth), however this is disputed. Some refer the δη to an Illyrian form (see Albanian dhe (earth)), or even whole δημη. See also Δαμία (Damía), Σεμέλη (Semélē).
