In France, the tradition of celebrating name days, or "fête du prénom" in French, is not as widespread as it is in some other countries. However, some French families do still celebrate name days, especially those with Catholic or Orthodox Christian traditions.
The most common way to celebrate a name day in France is to mark the feast day of the saint associated with one's given name. However, unlike in other countries, there is not a set calendar of name days that is widely recognized across France.
Instead, many families simply choose to celebrate their name days on the same day as their birthdays, or on a day that is meaningful to them for some other reason. Some families may also use the name day as an occasion to gather with family and friends, exchange gifts, or enjoy a special meal or dessert.
