"Dimitrov skins Moran - deliberately flying to collide there - and it’s got to be another penalty...."
-- Ludo Bagman's match commentary of Bulgaria v Ireland, 25 August 1994 (GF8)

Commentary

Etymology

Dimitrov (Bulgarian Димитров) means "son of Dimitar". Dimitar comes from Latin Demetrius and Greek Δημητριος (Demetrios), which are both from the Greek goddess Demeter: δα (da) "earth" and μητηρ (meter) "mother" (Behind the Name).
