Discover What Your Name Means Day

Discover What Your Name Means Day takes place during International Celebrate Your Name Week. It is a day to learn what your name and the names of others mean. There are many sources on the internet that can help you learn the history of names and what they mean. The day may also be used to give your name its own meaning—one that reflects who you are.

How to Observe

Celebrate the day by learning what your name means. You can learn the history and meaning of both your first and last names, as well as the names of others. You can also think up a meaning for your name that reflects who you are.
