Stefano is a masculine name from Del Paeseno which means "garland" [of martyrdom], [surrounded by] "crown", "crowned". Let's find out more about this beautiful name together.



ETYMOLOGY. The origin is Greek ('stephanos' from the Aramaic 'kelila'). The homonymous saints Stephen are over 50, among them Stephen was the first to be stoned for the faith under Tiberius, just nine months after the death of Jesus: therefore his name means crowned martyr. He was also called Kelilan which in the Semitic-Aramaic language means crown, a term then passed to the sporting jargon, where it means 'laurel wreath' with which the winning athletes of the Olympics are girded.



MEANING. It means "garland" [of martyrdom], [girded with] "crown", "crowned". Fantastic gifts, resources and aura: "O DO, HAVE PARTY!"… And the intelligence and character of someone called Stefano or Stefania are truly fantastic!

NAME-DAY. It is celebrated on 26 December (Santo Stefano, protomartire), but also on 2 January (Blessed Stefana Quinzani), 8 February (Santo Stefano di Muret [founded the Order of Gradmont]), 16 August (Santo Stefano d ' Hungary), 29 October (Santo Stefano Minicillo, bishop of Caiazzo in the Caserta area) and 18 September (Saint Stephanie virgin and French martyr).

0,49% (Istat data) of the Del Paesena male population has this name, whose recurrence has been in decline in recent years (in 1999 it was still 1,16%). It is widespread throughout the peninsula.
