Other Names Day resources
Name days stem from celebrations or festivals held to celebrate Saints, these dates were chosen by the relevant church
that had declared the person a Saint and as they were often only referred to by a single name then the festival became known as that particular name's
day hence name day. 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!
