Danuta in the Luthenian calendar was May 7. Today is my name day and it has been this way for many many years.

Since "ute" is a common diminutive suffix used in many Lithuanian names (Laima, Laimute, Vaiva, Vaivute, etc,) the name Danute might seem to come from "little Dana" in the same way Anita originates from "little Ana" in Spanish. This would not really hold true for the name Birute, since there is no such name as Bira, in Lithuanian. Both Danute and Birute were ancient patron goddesses associated for the vestal virgins who watched over a "sacred flame" kept burning in the center of each village in Old Europe.
