I am new to the Orthodox Church and will be Christmated on the 28th of this month, wanting to know more about the traditions of names and name days. How does one know if a name is "Orthodox" -- does it have to be a saint or just a biblical name or one that can be taken from a biblical name? Example, Evelina is a russian name taken from Eve so can it be an 'Orthodox" name? Are there any books out there on this subject? My Husband was given his name but there are several saints by that name, how do I know when his name day is?
