What is this "Name Day" Tradition in Spain?

What is this "Name Day" Tradition in Spain? | Name News | Scoop.it
Have you ever had a Spaniard inform you that today is special because “es el día de mi santo” (which literally means “it’s my saint’s day”)? While this is a foreign concept to most of us who grew up in the US, Spain and many other European countries have a long tradition of observing the Christian calendar of saints.

Would you let a calendar name your baby? + apple babies for Fall

Would you let a calendar name your baby? + apple babies for Fall | Name News | Scoop.it
you don’t have to set out for the Karakum Desert unless you’re so inclined. And you don’t have to choose a name based on a calendar, unless finding it there transforms it from just another name to The Right Name for your child.

Jumps versus Clashes, Effie's Day, and Kardashian baby name speculation

Jumps versus Clashes, Effie's Day, and Kardashian baby name speculation | Name News | Scoop.it

One sister is meant to be serious and accomplished; the other, creative and quirky. That's a recipe for dissatisfaction between the siblings.

You can celebrate your own name rather than a saint's for your own personal Name Day-- Anna Otto tells us how it's done in her family and how it could be done in yours. Care to try it? - baby names
