Greek Name Day: Florentia, Florentia, Florentios, Florence, Dia
Name Days are often named after a Christian saint or martyr and are mainly celebrated in Catholic and Eastern Orthodox countries. On this day, the holy person is celebrated, as well as anyone named after this person. Often, these celebrations are more important than birthdays.
Florentia, Florentios, Florence, Dia are Greek names derived from The Holy Martyr Florentios from the city of Thessaloniki. As a result of his Christianity, Saint Florentios was arrested by the Government of Thessaloniki. He boldly confessed his devotion to the Lord and scorned the God of the Greeks, leading to his torturous death during which he continued to recite prayers.
