When Is Your Name Day?

Updated on August 23, 2017

Celebrating Name Day is Christian and Othodox Tradition

If you live in Europe or Latin America and you are either Christian or Orthodox religion, you know what the Name Day is and you probably celebrate it. For the rest of the world, this tradition is unknown and somewhat strange. Many of my American friends never even heard of it.

So, this is a story about celebrating a Name Day tradition - not birthday but close... On this page you can also find a list of names where you can check on which day your Name Day falls and maybe you can start celebrating your own Name Day!

Celebrate Your Own Given Name!

The custom originated with the Catholic and Orthodox calendar of saints

Catholic church in Middle Ages promoted celebration of Name Days where believers, named after a particular saint, would celebrate that saint's feast day. Celebrating birthdays in old days was considered for a pagan tradition.

Today, not many countries celebrate Name day and, for instance in Croatia (where I live) this custom has turned into similar tradition to celebrating a birthday. So, it's like having two birthdays each year! Now, that's something! :)

Have You Ever Heard of Celebrating a Name Day Custom? - Do you know when your Name Day is?

Did you know about celebrating a Name day Tradition?

Name Day of a Person and Name Day of the City! - We celebrate both!

I will probably manage to explain this the easiest way through an example:

My name is Michelle and I'm named after St. Michael. St. Michael's feast day is on September 29th each year. So, this is a day when I celebrate my Name Day.

But, this is not all. We also have cities celebrating Name Days! How is this possible? Well, each city (and even a village) has a church (one or more of them) and each church is named after a saint. So, if the church is named St. Michel's Church - city where this church belongs to will also celebrate it's Name Day or City Day on St. Michael's feast day - September, 29th each year.

Instructions for the easiest way to use this calendar

As you will see if you try to find particular name, this list is quite long. So, the simplest way to find what you're looking for is to use " CTRL + F " and use find feature of your internet browser to find names you're interesting in.

Also, not all variations of certain names are included (e.g. there is Isaac but not Issac on the list) so, if you can't find exact name, try searching for it's variation.

      Didn't find my name. Marcella. What a name. It could be worse though, I know someone named Dagmar. Still this is a nice lens explaining a wonderful concept.

      Very interesting topic... not many are acquainted with the notion of name days...

      I assume that these are catholic name days that you mention (I wasn't aware that the catholic church celebrated name days), as Saint Dimitrios is celebrated on the 26th of October, not the 8th (according to the Greek Orthodox Church... but Dimitrios is mainly used in the Orthodox world anyway)...

      Well I don't know what to think. The name Diana is on the list and I guess there is a Blessed Diana. But really the name goes back to the pagan goddess Diana who was worshiped at a festival on August 13, So I suppose I could celebrate that date as a naming day if I were to do so. It is interesting to see how different customs evolve.

    • justholidays profile image

      justholidays 7 years ago

      Saints of Catholic and Orthodoxe calendars are celebrated here also... We call it "ephemerides"... And thus every day is Saint- somebody. Some Saints come with a special meaning, like Saint-Catherine; which is a holiday that is not really joyful for single women who are 24 years old and more, as they're supposed to remain single for the rest of their life :) Or Saint-Michael, who killed the dragon and many more nice legends and stories.

      ulla_hennig 7 years ago

      I've never known my name day till today - it is the 21 October. In Germany, name days are only celebrated by Catholics, and they celebrate them more than their birthdays. As I have been brought up as a protestant, I had no name day to celebrate and always envied my Catholic peers who celebrated two times a year!

      Is there a name day for "created names" or "names that mothers made up", or "made up names using other names"? My mom named me for the '40s film star, Veronica Lake, but wanted to call me Mickey, so she combined the two. I won't tell you what it is. Until recently, I was the only person on the globe with this name. Now, there are several others out there who live in my "neck of the woods". I don't want it to get too popular.
