Origin of name Tatiana – Agia Tatiani (St Tatiani)
Tatiana was the name of a 3rd-century woman, who was martyred in Rome under the emperor Alexander Severus.
Tatiana was a Christian, depicted in the scripts as a follower of Apostle Paul and Peter. She was very eager in the performance of her religious duties and became very known among the Christian circles. However, her fame turned against her, since the pagans could not accept that a woman was serving the Christians and was ignoring the pagan symbols.
During the persecutions against Christians, Tatiana was imprisoned, but kept supporting her faith. She was brought in front of the emperor and they entered together a pagan temple.
Tatiana prayed warmly to Christ and managed to destroy the pagan symbols. Then she was tortured to death.
The Orthodox church declared her a saint and celebrates the nameday of Tatiana on January 12th.
