Celebrating a Name Day sounds like fun. It would’ve been an upside to being one of several Lauras in my class every year!

I love this idea. Especially with twins – it gives them their own day. But it’s funny – me and one of the twin share a day, my husband is the very next, the other twin’s name day is 10 days before their birthday. Oh, and our oldest doesn’t even have a day. This is just not doable for us. 🙁

I found out versions of Katherine have multiple name days in some countries

neat but it seems as a society we are so obsessed with everybody being special and finding minor reasons to celebrate ourselves….would prefer a name day to learn about someone with your name/name family that has historical significance or made a positive contribution to society or even someone that was horrible and learning from their mistakes instead of it just being about oneself.
