Name Day in October: names for girls and boys on the church calendar
Previously, choosing a name for a newborn was not a problem for young parents. Adults turned to the priest, who, having learned the date of birth of the birthday man, was looking for a name.
Now parents have the right to choose a name for their taste or rely on the data of the church calendar. According to the calendar, the name day in October is celebrated by the owners of 116 female and male names, so choosing a name can be guided by the dates of the name day.
And for children born in October, parents can decide on a worldly name, and if the rite of baptism is planned, then on the Orthodox.
Previously, it was possible to name the newborn with the help of the date calendar. So Orthodox Christians called the church book containing calendars.
It is composed in the order of months and days of the year, each of which is assigned to the worship of the saint.
Babies were called by the name of that saint whose memory fell on the birthday of this child. Name days — this is the day of memory of saints.
Gradually, this rule has ceased to be mandatory. During the existence of the USSR, the tradition was decried, and it was not customary to celebrate the day of the angel.
Today, young parents, lost in a wide variety of names, are increasingly turning to the calendar church for help.
When choosing a name for a child born in October, it is necessary to take into account their inherent characteristics. The right choice will strengthen and strengthen the personality of the person.
Children who appear in the tenth month of the year have sociability and openness to the outside world. They are famous for a high degree of responsibility in the work processes that management values, and colleagues listen to their opinions.
People of this month are distinguished by their active attitude and lightning-fast decision making. Nevertheless, money issues prefer to carefully consider and weigh, for fear of making a mistake.
Characteristic features depending on gender:
- Women born in October grow up leaders in all spheres of life. Do not accept treason and betrayal, so instantly "strike out" from the life of the guilty.
- Men of this month are famous for practicality, prudence and often greed. They do not perceive criticism, so the partners choose a person who is able to respect and sincerely admire their person.
When choosing a name, you should pay attention to the date of the newborn, to also take into account the sign of the zodiac, during the reign of which the baby was born.
Among the masculine versions for boys born in October, old church names are presented in the calendar, which frighten the outdated and difficult pronunciation. However, in the selection process, you can contact the priest, who will assist in the selection of a more current version of the name.
Each day of the month corresponds to several male variants, and the patron saint for the boy is also determined:

The story of one of our readers Alina R .:
Money has always been my main concern. Because of this, I had a bunch of complexes.
I considered myself a failure, problems at work and in my personal life haunted me. However, I decided that I still needed personal help.
Sometimes it seems that the matter is in you, all the failures are only a consequence of bad energy, the evil eye or some other evil force.
But who will help in a difficult life situation, when it seems that all life is rolling down the slope and passing by you. It is difficult to be happy working as a cashier for 26 thousand rubles, when you had to give 11 for renting an apartment.
What was my surprise when my whole life suddenly changed for the better overnight. I could not even imagine that one could earn so much money that at first glance a knickknack could have such an effect.
It all started with the fact that I ordered a personal one.
