|The American Name Day Calendar of First Names|
|My name is Matt Pekkola. I am one of the founders and the current copyright owner of the original "The American Name Day Calendar of First Names". Regretfully, Matt Norman, a co-founder and a life-long friend who made significant contributions to the nameday calendar, passed away a few years ago. |
In the late 1970īs, we noted that the nameday celebration, the way it is being celebrated in many European countries, was practically unknown here in the U. S. So, having been born and spent our youth in Northern Europe, and therefore accustomed to celebrate first names, we decided to introduce this popular European tradition here in the U. S. by publishing "The American Name Day Calendar of First Names".
And, after comprehensive world wide research, the first edition was published in 1982, containing 2000 first names listed on their assigned days and alphabetically in the index.
Originally based on the feast days of the saints, we actually "Americanized" this old popular European custom by designing a nameday calendar in which most of our namedays are based on both religion and American history.
