Happy Belated Name Day, Erika and Richard! Všechno nejlepší k svátku!

Wishing a very happy belated name day to...

Happy belated name day, Erika!
The name Erika is a variant of Erica, which is of Old Norse origin and means  "forever or alone, ruler".

Happy belated name day, Richard!
The name Richard is of Old German origin and means "powerful leader".  Richard has always been a very popular name throughout the English-speaking world. It was first imported to England by the Normans, though it is derived from the Germanic elements "ric" (power) and "hard" (strong, hardy). The original form was probably pronounced with a hard C (RICK hart).
