Didier is a French name. It comes from the Ancient Roman name Didius.
Extremely common among Haitian men. It has a dualistic meaning. On one hand the name can be translated as extremely desirable but it can also be translated as longing.
During the 5th century AD, with the Christianisation of ancient pagan names, it has become associated with the name Desiderius, related to Latindesiderium - which can be translated as "ardent desire" or "the longed-for".
Didier is a French comedy film directed by Alain Chabat, released in 1997. The director received a César Award for Best Debut in 1998.
