Thank you very much Brandy Smile Exclamation

When I talk with my Polish - American guests most of them is not aware of our Polish tradition of Name Day so I am very nicely surprised of your wishes Exclamation What's more, there are a few more Zenon name days in calendar, for example on February 14 or December 22, but I am celebrating it exactly today Wink.

But I haven't found "Brandy" in my Polish calendar. Do you know if there is a Polish equivalent of your given name Question Or when in your calendar is your name day Question


BTW, today June 23, we celebrate Father's Day in Poland. Don't forget to make wishes to your Polish dads Smile Exclamation

Awww, you are so welcome! I dont know what the equivalent name to Brandy is but I would like to know that. I do know when I was baptised the Priest wouldnt baptise me with my first name because it is also a name of an alcohol, so they used my middle name Alexandria, maybe that will be there.

I know Brandy is a female form of Brandon.

Name-day of Aleksandra in Polish calendar is on May 18th: http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imieniny and Brandon (or Brendan) can celebrate his name-day two days before, on May 16th: http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brendan Smile .

Thank you, Zenon. I also looked on http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henryk_(imi%C4%99) which showed 11 days, a lot more than on the name day kalendarz that I have. When I checked 10 June, the name day closest to my birthday, on http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/10_czerwca I found I share the day with 21 names: Amancjusz, Amata, Apollo, Asteriusz, Aureliusz, Bogumił, Bogumiła, Cecylia, Diana, Edgar, Henryk, Ingolf, Jan, Maksym, Małgorzata, Mauryn, Onufry, Tymoteusz, Wiktorian, Wiktoriana i Wiktorianna.

According to Catholic tradition St. Anne/sw. Anna was the grandmother of Jesus and her Feast Day is celebrated on July 26. Among other things she is the patron of unmarried women, of married women, of women in labor, and grandmothers. In Poland the Confraternity of St. Anne existed in the late 1500s and still exists today. I recently became interested in researching that Confraternity when I found an entry in the Marriage Register of the Parish of Przedecz. The entry contains the words in Polish which a new member repeated and the words in Latin by which the priest received the new member/members into the Confraternity. Other pages of the entry list the members of the parish who were enrolled in the Confraternity. A number of times the enrollment ceremony took place on the Feast of St. Anne, but what was of particular interest to me was that one of my sixth great grandfathers, Jozef Lichmaniak/Lichmana became a member on May 24, 1741. It is not often that one can learn something about a long deceased ancestor other than dates, spouse, children, occupation, etc. But in that entry were actual words spoken by him.

Happy Name Day to all Annas/Annes. Your patroness provided information about an ancestor from long ago.

Reply with quote

I was lucky enough to be in Poland this summer with Zenon for 3 wonderful days. He found and introduced me to my cousin Anna. We had a wonderful first visit with Zenon translating on July 7th. We were lucky enough to be invited back to Anna's home 3 more times. The last visit was on July 26th, Anna's Name Day. We had a wonderful celebration. and were presented with more wonderful food and drink than I could every imagine eating.
