Happy Name Day, Jiří. Všechno nejlepší k svátku!
Today we honor Jiří. Happy name day, Jiří!
The name Jiří is the Czech form of George, which is of Greek origin and means "farmer". St. George was a 3rd- century Roman soldier from Palestine who was martyred during the persecutions of emperor Diocletian. Later legends describe his defeat of a dragon, with which he was often depicted in medieval art.
