The present site is an effort by Orthodox Christians ecclesiastically belonging to the Church of Greece with Archbishop His Beatitude Hieronymos II.

According to the Greek Orthodox tradition, nearly every day of the year is dedicated to a Christian saint or Martyr. When someone is named after one of those saints, that day becomes their "name day" and, traditionally, is celebrated.

The present Greek name day portal includes more than 3800 Greek first (given) names and is the most complete namedays database on the internet today. From these 3800 names :

  • 2800 names (750 prime names και 2085 derivatives) have known nameday according to the Orthodox Synaxarium.

  • 980 names with non established and thus unknown name day. Please comment using our contact form. The search is continuing.
Soon in a separate database we will be adding 28000 more names as they have been researched by scholars at the University of Oxford.

We are investigating the fact of expanding our site to also include name days from other Orthodox Churches except the Greek one. This task is difficult since the name day of a name must belong to a saint or martyr of the Orthodox religion and at the moment we only know the Saints of the Greek Church. Thus we wish to locate people from other Orthodox Churches (ie Russian, Romanian, Armenian etc) that do know details of established (canonized) Orthodox saints in order to incorporate them to a Pan-Orthodox Synaxarium.

Please note that all Saints that were established (canonized) as Saints before the year 1054 AD are common Saints between the Orthodox and the Roman Catholic Christianity since in 1054 AD there was the scism in Christianity. From then on the paths are different and the same unfortunate ending applies to the saints as well. For more information on Orthodox Saints please click here.

Choose from the list at the top of the page :

  • either the initial name letter in order to see when the name is celebrated according to the Greek Orthodox tradition

  • or the month in order to see what names are celebrated in that month
The present site is the effort of a group of Christian Orthodox persons residing in Thessaloniki, Greece. It is a project compiled and serviced during our free time. We do not have any active bussiness affiliation to any Christian organization but we were baptized to Orthodox Christianity since our birth. We are also very fond of Mount Athos which is the ark of Orthodox Christianity.

We hope that you will enjoy our site as much as we have !!!
