April 1 is the date that the saints dedicate to Saint Hugo of Grenoble, also known as Hugo de Châteauneuf.

This saint can be a canon born in the year 1053 and who lived in France, more specifically in the city of Valence. He always showed an interest in theology, which led him to be bishop of Grenoble at a very young age, a prominent position within the French church.
If something has happened to the history of Saint Hugo of Grenoble, it is his personality and behavior always pious. In fact, during his bishopric he tried to fight against all the clergy who took advantage of his privileged position in his favor, instead of complying with God's commands. His saint is celebrated on April 1 because this was the date of the year 1134 when he passed away.
However, April 1 is not the only date on which the special day of children named Hugo is celebrated.
