NAME DAYS. In addition to celebrating birthdays, some Norwegians also celebrate navnedager (name days). The tradition of name days stems from early Christian times when names were assigned to each calendar date and then celebrated on that date. This tradition is more common in the other Nordic countries, but it has become more popular in Norway since the late 1980s.
Read the Wikipedia article about name days and find out whether your name is listed in the Norwegian name almanac. Then, look up the name day for these five common Norwegian names. Match the name to the date it is celebrated.
Note: The website lists the months in Norwegian, but they are cognates, so look for familiar spellings of words.
