Here is one thread that addresses Name Day.

Quoting Ella

Quoting: Honeybee
with all that said, How do you say "Happy Name Day" in Polish. The more I think about it, I think we'll have our usual Sunday dinner, with the family, BBQ, beers , etc, and I'll just say Happy Name Day to him. We'll make a bigger deal of his birthday, when the time comes.

I heard that people receive gifts on their names days. Please give an example. This would be for a man.

"Name Day" Polish are celebrating same as Birthday. Any gift is welcome.
Name Day in polish = Imieniny
known greetings: Najlepsze zyczenia z okazji Imienin or ......Wszystkiego
najlepszego z okazji Imienin
