is a French
name. It comes from the Latin
name Didius, which was used in antique Rome (as in Titus Didius, 1st century BC, and the Roman emperor Didius Julianus 132-193).
During the 5th century AD, with the christianisation of ancient pagan names, it was decided to associate a new latin translation to this name: Desiderius
or "Desiderare", meaning "desiring", "aspiring to"...Thus, the Latin
variant of the name of the king of Lombards, Didier (710-774), was Desiderius.is the variant of the name or the Latin name Deodatus

- PLEASE DO NOT ADD HERE ANY PEOPLE WHOSE FIRST NAME IS "Didier",
BECAUSE IT'S UNLIKELY THAT AN EDITOR WOULD LINK TO JUST
WHEN HE THOUGHT OF A PRECISE PERSON.
- BUT ADD ONLY THOSE FEW PEOPLE ACTUALLY VERY OFTEN REFERENCED TO AS JUST "Didier",
AND NOT JUST BY FANS IN A GIVEN CONTEXT. THANKS.
