Is there a saint for my name, Cynthia?
Cynthia is the feminine form of Synesius. In Greek the name means "understanding." A very short biography says that Synesius was a Roman martyr beheaded in 279 under Emperor Aurelian. December 12 is assigned as Synesius's feast day. St. Diana is also known as Cynthia. A worldly young woman, she was converted by a sermon she heard. She died in 1236. Her feast is June 9.
