Czech Name Days

Discover over 365 Czech names that are on the Czech calendar! In Czechia, every day of the year is someone's name day (svátek or formally jmeniny in Czech). It is a reason to celebrate, wish the person a Happy Name Day, and buy a little present, like flowers and a box of chocolates. Remember: Never give anyone an even number of flowers (2, 4, 6...). Such bouquets are used at funerals. The number should be an odd one (1, 3, 5...).

Find out if your name has an equivalent in Czech and what its diminutive version would be. Learn on which days your friends' or family members' names fall and how to wish them a Happy Name Day in Czech!
