Did you know that this week is “Celebrate Your Name Week”?
Neither did I. :)
In any case, “Celebrate Your Name Week” (CYNW) is indeed March 2nd through March 8th this year:
- March 2nd is “Namesake Day”
- March 3rd is “Fun Facts Day”
- March 4th is “Unique Names Day”
- March 5th is “Learn What Your Name Means Day”
- March 6th is “Nametag Day”
- March 7th is “Middle Name Pride Day”
- March 8th is “Genealogy Day”
The week-long holiday was created by amateur onomatologist Jerry Hill in 1997. Here’s the official Celebrating Names website, which includes ways to celebrate each day.
