Happy Name Day, Jolana! Všechno nejlepší k svátku!

Today we honor Jolana.  Happy name day, Jolana!
The name Jolana is the Czech and Slovak form of Yolanda, which is of Greek and Spanish origin and means "violet flower".

A famous bearer was a 13th-century countess of Vianden in Luxembourg who joined a convent against her parents' wishes, later becoming the subject of medieval legend.
