What is „Schmidt mit Dete“ supposed to mean anyway?

Well, my last name „Schmidt“ is the most common name in German. Since there are a couple of spelling variations (like „Schmid“ or „Schmitt“), I usually have to explain that I’m spelled with a „d“ and a „t“ at the end. Schmidt mit dete means just that: „Schmidt with a dee and a tee“ in German. :-)
