Happy Belated Name Day, Bernard! Všechno nejlepší k svátku!

Yesterday we honored Bernard. Happy belated name day, Bernard!
The name Bernard is of Old French and Old German origin, and the meaning of Bernard is "strong; brave bear". 

Three famous medieval saints bore the name: a founder of a monastic order, the patron saint of mountain climbers, and a scholastic philosopher.
