March Name Days

The coming of March signals the beginnings of Spring and, thankfully, lighter and longer days. The name of the month comes from the Roman name Martius, derived directly from Mars the god of war and victory. March has many continental translations, including: Marec (Slovenian), Maret (Indonesian), Martios (Greek), and Marzo (Spanish). The Anglo-Saxons called March Hrêðmonað / Hrethmonath. According to Bede, the month was named for the goddess Hrêðe / Hretha, to whom they sacrificed at this time of year. Bede used the Latinised form of the name: Rheda. Very little is known about this goddess, but it has been suggested that her name is related to the Old English word hréþ "glory, victory." This makes an interesting parallel with Mars, and it is possible that she was a goddess of war.
