In honour of St Andrew’s Day and in memory of my father who was a Scottish soldier (20th Batallion NZEF) and would have been 98 a couple of weeks ago:

Andrei  noted  last year that Andrew is also patron saint of Russia & the Ukraine and that today is his (Andrei’s) name day.

    I think you can change your name by deed poll but I doubt you can change your birth date – you might need to consult a lawyer 🙂

    I’m not well versed int he protocol around saints’ days but presume it’s the same day every year.
