Every month, we will select an employee and tell you more about the origin of the name as well as looking at their job specifications
Name-days are eagerly anticipated events in the Czech calendar. Although the custom is widespread in Catholic and Orthodox countries in both Europe and Latin America (and is often more popular than birthdays), in other countries the celebration is largely unknown. For this reason MILOS would like to introduce you to the Name-day.
Every month, we will select an employee and tell you more about the origin of the name as well as looking at their job specifications. This month is the turn of Filip/Philip, who celebrates his name-day on the 26th of May.
The name Filip derives from the Greek, Philippos, meaning a “person who loves horses“. In ancient Greece, horses could only be afforded by those wealthy enough to be able to look after them, giving it the association of somebody with a love of something noble.
Famous bearers of the name include the musician, Phil Collins from the UK, and the Renaissance architect, sculptor and designer, Filippo Brunelleschi of Italy.
MILOS employees include Filip Horak from the Sales Team.
We wish you all the best!
