Happy Name Day, Diana! Všechno nejlepší k svátku!

Today we honor Diana.  Happy name day, Diana!
The name Diana is of Latin origin and means "divine".  In mythology, Diana was an ancient Roman divinity who came to be associated with the Greek god Artemis.  Noted for her beauty and fleetness, Diana is often depicted as a huntress.  The name has been used since the 16th-century, and was popularized by the late Princess of Wales.

I tend to associate the name with a great song:

Oh, Michael & Diana, how me miss thee.  Gone too soon.
