Greek Name Days
Ονομαστικές Εορτές

  In Greece Name Days are the days that we celebrate our names with association to a Saint, or a Holy Day. Name Days are celebrated more than birth-days in Greece. In this section we have included many of the Name Days.
If your name is not in the list or if you see any mistakes, please go to Contact us, and write us about it. We'll be gland to add or correct name days.

Choose the letter that your name starts with:
Α, Β, C, D, Ε, F, G, H,, I, J, K, L, M, N O, P, S, T, V.
