    Name Day

    Do you celebrate Name Day in Russia?
    In Greece - Cyprus every day is associated with a Saint and the person who has the name of the Saint celebrates (exactly like birthday).
    In case you have: What do you say to the person who celebrate (i.e. wishes). For example for birthday is: С днем Рождения
    Чем больше слов, тем меньше они стоят.

    We have exactly the same thing here but we don't really celebrate this. I'm sure most people don't even know when their Name Day is but everyone sure has an idea of what именины is

    As you can see именины is from the word имя (name). The conventional phrase for this occasion is С именинами тебя or Поздравляю с именинами and anything like that

    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.

    Do you know whether other Christian Countries celebrate it? (e.g. USA, UK, Italy etc).

    Именины, "день ангела", день тезоименитства.

    It is сelebrated by Orthodoxal and Catholic Christians.
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?

    Именины (Name Day)

    Именины (Name Day) часто путают с Днём рождения. Обычно в просторечии. Например: "Справляет именины", "У тебя сегодня именины".

    Именины в правильном значении празднуют те люди, которые следят за церковным календарём. Не однозначно: это ближе к вере, или к суеверию? Также поздравить с именинами - это повод проявить внимание к человеку. Если внимание надо проявить, а другого повода нет

    Ну это не особо распространено. Редко с таким сталкивался. Может быть, в сильно религиозных семьях.
