Namesake Day

Date When Celebrated : This holiday is celebrated on the first Sunday in March


Who were you named after? Why were you named after that person(s)? And, why were you named after the person?

These are all excellent questions to explore and find the answer to on Namesake Day.

Your parent selected a name to give to you for very good reasons. As parents-in-waiting, we spend countless hours pouring through baby name books. We seek names that sound good, and names that honor someone we love or respect. We read up on what the meaning of the names on our short list represent.  Then, on the day you are born, we bestow a first and middle name for very good and purposeful reasons.

Donít know why mom and dad named you Billy, or Susie, Mason or Carter? Maybe, mom and dad anointed Alex or Erica, simply because it was on the Top 10 list of names the year you were born.  If you donít know why you were given the name that you have, donít you think itís time to find out!? On Namesake Day itís time to contact mom and dad, to get the answers. If mom and/or dad are no longer around, perhaps a grandparent, an aunt or an uncle can offer the insight to this question. While you are performing this research, try to find out more about your namesake(s). We also encourage you to take this event as an opportunity to explore your family Ancestry.

History and Origin of Namesake Day

 There is precious little information about the creation of this day. We did not find the creator of this day, its date of origin, or information why this day was created. This event appears to have first been celebrated sometime after 2015.

Often, we do not list events with as little historical information as this holiday. But, we felt that everyone should take the opportunity to learn why they were given the name we have, and most importantly, to learn about our namesake.
