Honestly, this has always been something that strikes us about “name days!” Sure, it’s not too difficult to remember YOUR special day, but it seems that everyone here in Spain is aware of ALL of their friends’ and family members’ saints’ days too. Turns out, it’s not that Spaniards have incredibly impressive powers of the memory; rather, most calendars and agendas will include the name of the saint whose feast day is being observed right there next to the number of each date.
In fact, if you check out a Spanish agenda, you will find that it not only lists one name on most days, but sometimes you can find two, three, or even four. As previously mentioned, Spain is not the only country that celebrates name days and so the names you will find on calendars here in Spain are different than the ones you will find in other countries. This makes sense, as we have different common names in each language but also because, in the modern age, calendars are adapting to the addition of more names that are not saints. This might also be why Spaniards will translate the idea to their “name day”—as not all names come from saints, but that is where the tradition started.
Curious when your name day would be? You can check out this list of the Spanish “name days,” looking for the ‘equivalent’ of your name or check out this page that was developed for curious Americans whose often-not-religious-at-all names aren’t commonly found on lists that derive from Roman Catholic and/or Greek Orthodox calendar of saints.
Bunny I look at as otaralBunny wrote: ↑Fri Jun 05, 2020 1:20 pmI have my handy morse code chart to hand. Your dots/dashes are correct on the image for Emanuel but not for the VM word otolal according to your chart futher up the page. It appears to translate as EDEüAü, not a traceable word. Though, and this is an interesting point EDEUAU is found in a Welsh book of bible contemplations, and seems to translate as Welsh word "threads"
"gan wneuthur y rhwymau hynny nid amgen nag y gywnaeth samson a'i wydyn, sef edeuau carth."
From "Contemplations on the historical passages of the Old and New Testaments". John Huges, 1842.

I can see that otoral could transcribe into Morse and be translated as edesaü but what does that mean? Maybe a bit like the image of Edessa via Turkish, no idea really. The VM glyph-morse list doesn't seem to match up with the translations (using standard Morse) nor do the number of letters in words.
