Dimity Origin and Meaning

The name Dimity is a girl's name of English origin.

Dimity is fairly common in Australia, but unheard of outside of it, which is surprising given its similarity to names like Amity, Verity, and Cassidy.

The fabric probably became used as a name given that it was often used in the nineteenth century to make bustles on fashionable clothing, making it ultra-feminine. We think it is a pretty name with great nicknames options including Dimi, Mimi and Mittie.

It's pretty without being overly frilly, instead it has more of a strong, tomboyish feeling. I quite like it.

I hear this name occasionally here in Australia but I figured it was a European import sounding similar to Dimitri. I didn't know that it's an Australian specialty. It's not very common here though.
