The term name indicates the day of the year in which the saint whose name is celebrated is celebrated.
In the Christian tradition, through the Sacrament of Baptism the Christian receives his own name in the Church, according to what is stated in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
Parents can choose a name of a saint, or a name that expresses a Christian mystery or a Christian virtue.
The Saint whose name the Christian bears thus becomes an example of charity and a faithful protector.
In Italy, the day of the name day is celebrated mainly in the south, but those who bear the name of the most well-known and venerated saints, such as St. Francis and others, are certainly more likely to be remembered on that day by relatives and friends.
