    Name days are an age old Christian custom, especially a Catholic custom.
    Not only Catholics know them.
    of you ask google, you will find lots of infos

    I know my Name Day. My family heritage dates back into Greek Catholic/Orthodox, so Name Days were a big part of their family practices.

    i am glad to read this.

    i could not believe that name days should be so completely unknown.

    Some of the odd names children are called of late might make name days a bit awkward.

    Does Apple have a Name Day?
