The street was named in honor of the city of Dmitrov, whence came a large part of its inhabitants – artisans. From 1937 to 1994 its name was Pushkinskaya, although the only thing that linked the street with the poet - the giant gambling debt. In one of the houses on this street he lost a huge amount of money to the sharper Ogon-Doganovsky. The debt was paid by him in installments till the end of his life.
