Name day - the custom of celebrating the (sometimes boisterous) holy or blessed day from the liturgical calendar, or on another day traditionally assigned to this name. The custom is particularly popular in Poland (except for Upper Silesia and Kashubia), but also present in Catholic regions, such as Bavaria. Name days are also celebrated in Bulgaria, Greece, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Latvia, as well as in Russia and Ukraine. In Sweden, the official name-day list is published by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Usually it involves making wishes and giving gifts to the birthday boy. It is sometimes customary that if there is more than one saint or blessed (patron) name (ie, if there are several name days on the calendar), the name day is celebrated on the first day after the birthday.
