Default Is Tursunov "Dima", or "Mitya"??

I see people randomly calling him by both names around here. As i have had it explained to me, "Dima" and "Mitya" are both colloquial forms for the full name "Dmitry", but they are NOT interchangeable, i.e. you are either Dima or Mitya but not both...

Dima has to be the most irritating name I have ever heard, it must piss him off badly to be called dima.

Why?

BTW what's the accent on 'Dima'? Is it the same as Alexander Dumas?

DIma, you accent the first cyllable. Nicknames for Dmitry in Russia are Dima and Mitya and a person chooses whatever he prefers. Tursunov prefers Mitya

You've got to be kidding. Those are 2 completely different names.

of course it's evident

but I've still no idea why my old-fashioned russian book and teacher told me that decades ago
(maybe Demetrius ->Demeter ->Peter or more likely it was a simple typo )

Дмитрий - from Demetra
Петр - from "petros", i.e. stone.
