NAME OF THE DAY

desiderato ITALIAN

During the fifth century AD, with the Christianization of ancient pagan names, it was decided to associate a new Latin translation to the newborn "Desiderius", relating to the Latin "dēsīdĕrātus" (desired, wanted child, expected child), in fact, the Latin word "desideratus" is strongly linked to the verb "expĕto" (burning desire) from which the English word "waiting", especially the waiting for the newborn. The name was also used in England during the Middle Ages, and was used until the 16th century in vernacular forms such as "Disary, Dissery, Dyzary, and Dyzory". The French form "Désirée", has been more successful, also as the equivalent of the name "Desideria", although it is of a connected root but not the same. 1) Desideratus († 550) was a French saint in the Christian church from Soissons. Unusually, he came from a family of saints, as his father, Auginus, mother, Agia, and brother, Deodatus, were all canonized. The parents taught the two boys to care for the poor and to give away all of their material possessions to aid others. 2) Princess Désirée, Baroness Silfverschiöld (Désirée Elisabeth Sibylla; born 2 June 1938) is the third child of Prince Gustaf Adolf, Duke of Västerbotten, and Princess Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, and granddaughter of King Gustaf VI Adolf of Sweden.
