    Wow first time hearing of this name day business.. How do you celebrate it? Do you get presents? It sounds like you're hijacking someone else's birthday just cos you got the same name [​IMG]

    Happy Name day anways [​IMG]

    In some families you make parties to celebrate your name day [​IMG]
    Well, the adults make parties. They like drinking!
    In my age you're lucky by getting some money. My problem is: the name "Kevin" isn't really popular in Poland, so nobody knows when my name-day is [​IMG]

    Not exactly. "Imiennik" is the person, whose name-day is today, not "imeninick" [​IMG]

    It's imendan in Croatian. It's no big deal here, though. If people happen to notice or know it's your name-day, they congratulate (along with corny jokes on how (in)appropriate your name is), but that's about it.

    Imeninick is a form of imenik, usually imeninick is used for younger children.

    Or maybe its a relatively common word-butcher.

    Erm.. What language are you talking about? I mean - in which language does this "imeninick" and "imenik" exist? I've googled "imeninick", but i haven't found anything.

    Hey, people.. So the greetings are over? It's not too late - come on, wish me something wonderful [​IMG]
