Historically Famous Daniellas

Most Christians, perhaps, named in honour of Daniel are named after the Old Testament prophet who outfaced the lions in their den and who had such strange visions. There are actually three St Daniels named after him: one, a medieval missionary to the Moors during the crusade_s; another, a French missionary to Senegal whose special love was for orphans, who died in 1936. The third, the most famous Daniel of all, was the Stylite (or pillar-saint) who lived in the fifth century. He lived a perfectly ordinary monk's life until he paid two visits to Simon the Stylite, who lived as a hermit on top of a 60-foot pillar on Mount Telanissae. It fired his enthusiasm so much that he was ordained on top of a pillar of his own, given to him by the Emperor Leo I, and lived there for 33 years. He came down only once, to reprimand the Emperor Basilicus for supporting a heretical doctrine. Otherwise, he lived atop his pillar, healing the sick, giving spiritual direction and preaching very good sermons

Other Names Day resources

The  popular custom of celebrating your name day is wide spread across Europe and the middle east it's rise can be traced back to people's desire to have the occasional party and with literacy being constrained to clergy and similar scribes then people would not know the date unless informed via this route hence if your saint name was being celebrated then why not push the boat out!
