Greek Name Day: Leptinis

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

The Greek name Leptinis derives from the Holy Martyr Leptina, who met her end by being dragged along the ground for announcing her Christianity.
