women like it too because they can cellebrate something personal each year without having to reveal their age (which everybody knows anyway cuz the kids talk a lot)

Renat

I was wondering about that one too...hmmmmmm

(which everybody knows anyway cuz the kids talk a lot)

That's why you tell your kids you're 20 because they think it's old enough.

I think it's got to do with Latin renatus - reborn

Oh, I've been generically called "geezer" since my daughter was capable of understanding the word, so the age really lost its meaning :)

if you're looking under "sledz", you'll never find it because nobody names their kids "sledz" anymore :)

You have 5 days which you can chose as your names day, (in which I won't give out the exact dates in fear of losing your secret identity and then being stalked).

Actually, I think you should always choose the name day which comes first right after your birthday...not just any...that's what i heard.

I think this is a great idea. The imieniny fascinated me from the day I stepped foot onto Poland. My husband and I both adopted one closest to our names - won't tell you though.

Now it's time for another great idea:
