Do you have this in your country?

Basically all days in the calendar have one or two names assigned to them. So once a year you celebrate your Name's Day which is basically slightly less important than your birthday. I however don't see why I should celebrate my name today or why I should have people celebrating it with me. But whatever, all hail the great Simona. And the useful thing about it is.. it's just another excuse to drink.

Nope, we don't have it.

Some people do it though, religious people I guess.

We have it. It's an ace excuse to get in touch with old friends you haven't contacted in aeons thanks to various reasons including but not limited to laziness and general not-caring. So then you can be all "Hey, happy name's day! So, how's life been treating you?".

& When it's your name day, you get a good excuse to eat some cake.

In France, we put "saint" before the name.
Today in "Saint Bienvenue", literally "Saint Welcome", a bit odd...Welcome is a first name in French.

Hey, remember last night when I drank seven drinks, a full cup of very strong punch and half a cup of pure gin? 'Cause I sure as shit don't.

Well, I remember some of it, but the parts I don't remember sound pretty damn amusing.

hahaha! you know there is also St. Iustin (or Iustinian)???


My name wasn't even in the calendar till just a few years ago because it's so foreign and nobody knew it but they all loved it. Till then I used to celebrate according to the Czech calendar. I forget when it was. They add new names every now and then.

I don't know why czechs keep a religious calendar! nothing church related has a real value there anyway!

I want a day now too.

I'm gonna ask my mom when mine would be according to religious people, I would probably have to convert Maartje to some saint it came from...which would be...female version of Maarten, coming from Martin...I think. Do you know, Sim?

10-30-2005, 03:43 AM
They also put non-religious names in now. Yeah, Martina would be September 9, at least here.

This name could be derived from several sources. It could be from Spanish linda meaning "beautiful"; it could be a short form of BELINDA or MELINDA; or it could be a short form of Germanic names ending with the element linde meaning "soft, tender".

Sooo true! ;)

Fine, if we're all doing the name thing:

JESSE
Gender: Masculine
Usage: English, Biblical
Pronounced: JES-ee [key]
From the Hebrew name Yishay which possibly meant "gift". Jesse was the father of King David in the Old Testament. A famous bearer of this name was Jesse James, an American outlaw who held up banks and stagecoaches. He was eventually shot by a fellow gang member for a reward. Another famous bearer was the American athlete Jesse Owens.
