Origin of the name THEOPHANIA.
Etymology of the name THEOPHANIA.
Meaning of the baby name THEOPHANIA.

  

THEOPHANIA.  Also accented Théophania.  The Latin form of Greek Theophaneia (q.v.), meaning "divine manifestation." 

... In an old German dictionary, the feast Theophania is translated "Giperahta naht" (the brightened night), a curious accordance with its Greek title.  Indeed, before the relic-worship of the Three Kings of Cologne had stifled the recollection of the real signification of the day of the Manifestation, the festival was commonly termed Perchten tac, Perchten naht (bright day, or bright night).  Then went on in Germany much what had befallen Beffana (q.v.) in Italy. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
