NAME OF THE DAY
This name derives from the Slavic name “Dazh'bog (Дажьбог)”, composed of two elements: “dáty (да́ти) (Ancient Greek: dídōmi, Sanskrit: dádāti, Persian: dâdan)” (to give) plus “Bog (Бог) *bogъ” (god). In turn the name means “the one who gives to God, giving god", god-giver, god-donor”. Dažbog was one of the major gods of Slavic mythology, most likely a solar deity and possibly a cultural hero. He is one of several authentic Slavic gods, mentioned by a number of medieval manuscripts, and one of the few Slavic gods for which evidence of worship can be found in all Slavic nations.
