Greek translation: χρόνια πολλά για τη γιορτή σου
English term or phrase: Happy Name Day!
In Christianity, a name day is a tradition in some countries of Europe and the Americas, and Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox countries in general. It consists of celebrating a day of the year that is associated with one’s given name. The celebration is similar to a birthday.
For example in Greece we say something like “Xronia Polla!” which means something like “live long” or “Christ Has Risen!” and they usually reply “He has, indeed!” What do you say in England?
