Children are typically named after the Patron Saint of their region with the eldest son often being named after his paternal grandfather and the oldest daughter after her paternal grandmother. Children sharing paternal grandparents often have the same first name. Traditionally, the person whose name day it is treats their friends to drinks and food at the local café.
