Dimo Hadzhidimov (1875, Ano Vrontou, today in Serres regional unit, Greece – 1924, Sofia, Bulgaria) was a 20th-century Bulgarian revolutionary from Macedonia[1][2] He is considered a Macedonian in the Republic of Macedonia. He was among the leaders of the left wing of IMORO. Hadzhidimov studied pedagogy in Kyustendil and then in Sofia.

After the Young Turks revolution he returned to Macedonia and was one of the founders of the People's Federative Party (Bulgarian Section). After 1909 he went back to Sofia, where Hadzhidimov entered Bulgarian Communist Party. During the Balkan Wars Hadzhidimov served as a Bulgarian soldier. After the First World War he was elected as a member of Bulgarian Parliament. He was assassinated by right wing IMRO activist Vlado Chernozemski in Sofia in 1924. His surname was given to Zhostovo village (now town since 1996) in Blagoevgrad Province in 1951. It was renamed as Hadzhidimovo.
