The Saint Day Tradition

September 14, 2019

In Spain, they have an odd little tradition of naming somebody after a Christian Saint, with a good Christian name. My name’s origins are not Christianity. It means Goddess of Peace according to Sea World. Every other name has a meaning. My name in particular, has meanings I do not quite understand but have to research with the better resources we have on the Internet in the present. I was named after a town in Galicia called Iria Flavia. I think mom was making things up to reassure the priest that I was given a Christian name.

We have a family picture collection of the Iria Flavia sign, and it is always in the photographs. I suppose more research on my name is in order. There are things I don’t know. It could be derived from the name Iris, which means Goddess of the Rainbow. I will do more research on the origins of my name and get back to you guys. I’m doing my best to keep up with what I’m working on. But anyway, yes, I’m figuring out a lot of things about my past lately. My St . Day is officially on the 13th of September.
