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. Because of this tradition, you will often find cousins with the same first name. Based on Greek tradition, the person of honor treats his/her friends at the local café.
