Origin of the name NATALIA.
Etymology of the
Meaning of the baby name NATALIA.
Latin name derived from (dies)
natalis, meaning "birthday," or in Church Latin
"Christmas day." Usage: Greece (Ναταλία),
... The 8th of September was chosen by
the Greek Church as the festival day of St. Natalia, the devoted wife who
attended her husband, St. Adrian, in his martyrdom, with heroism like that
of Gertrude von der Wart...
...The Eastern Church did not
originally observe the Nativity at all, contenting itself with the day
when the great birth was manifested to the Gentiles, and for this reason
there is no genuine Greek name for Christmas-day, and Natalia, though now
used as a Greek woman's name, is of Latin origin...
