Does anyone else celebrate their name day? I don’t think all cultures have a name day. Today was mine, as well as one or two more here.
What’s a name day bud?
Doesn’t the Jewish culture have one?
It’s basically celebrating the day of the year that is linked to your given name. It was a big thing with my Greek friends.
Nope, had never heard of the practice.
Its a big Greek tradition, my S.O’s family celebrate their name days
Interesting. It’s the first I hear of this.
I have heard of it, but we do not celebrate it at all
Dagga is already getting to people heads. Making up new days to celebrate stuff O_o
Nope don’t celebrate it but have heard of it
never heard of name days.
must add to my list of random things to research.
Also never heard of this, how do you figure out which day is linked to your name ?
I found this calendar.
I guess it will depend on where your name comes from if it appears on the list.
According to that 11 March for me
Seems we share a name day
TIL that may name day is 3 December.
Now the important question - Do you get presents on your name day?
Hey my name day is 26 December. That’s pretty awesome!!
mmmm my name day seems to be 6 September if i go on the variations of my name…
Happy Name Day to all the Mikes out there.
Whoa… I completely missed this topic. Thanks for the random necro, @czc . It’s actually really interesting.
My name day is 24 June.
^ This very important question was never answered. Folks who celebrate name days: Do you give/receive presents on your name day?
- What happens if your parents decide to give you a name like Anakin or Kahlan? Do they also get to choose a name day for you?
You too dude
