Name days in Greece are traditionally celebrated instead of birthdays and are typically selected from the Patron Saint of a particular region. A name day is the Feast Day of the Greek Orthodox Saint after which a child is named. The eldest daughter is often named after her paternal grandmother and the oldest son after his paternal grandfather. Cousins often have the same first name, when they share paternal grandparents. Traditionally, the person of honor treats his/her friends to drinks at a local café.
