Have you ever thought about choosing your baby's name based on his date of birth? Well, following the calendars of saint names, you could do it. In Spain, many years ago, there was the custom of giving the baby the name of the saint that corresponded to the day of his birth. The parents chose the name with the help of the saints. For this reason, today the names of many grandparents are very unusual to us, such as Encarnación, Welcome or Felicidad. But before, it was very normal.

There are no fixed rules for choosing a baby's name. It is chosen according to the tradition that each family follows, according to the culture or even according to the religion it has.

That remains a tradition in many families. They believe that it is a way to maintain family ties.
