The main function of The Nameday Book is the recording of anniversaries. To this end, it has the usual format of a birthday book, with several days to a page and a few lines under each feast for entering names of friends celebrating namedays, birthdays or other anniversaries on that day. A space is provided at the end of each month for recording the addresses of those celebrating anniversaires in that month. The Nameday Book also offers mini-biographies of almost 500 Saints, tells us the name and feast day of our personal patron, advises which Saints are patrons of places, arts, skills or trades, and includes more than 300 male and female name derivatives for those whose names are not immediately identifiable as Saints' names. The Nameday Book can also be used as a Liturgical Calendar. In researching this book, an attempt was made to select Saints whose names might be useful as Baptismal or Confirmation names in the new millennium. 156 pp.
