Name Days are often named after a Christian saint or martyr and are mainly celebrated in Catholic and Eastern Orthodox countries. On this day, the holy person is celebrated, as well as anyone named after this person. Often, these celebrations are more important than birthdays.
The name Kronos, also spelt Cronos, is a Greek name derived from the male deity Cronus, who was worshipped by the pre-Hellenic population of Greece. Cronus is also identified with the Roman God Saturn. Cronus functions were connected with agriculture. In art, he is depicted as an old man holding a sickle or a curved sword.
