Today in addition to being my onomastico is also the feast of Santa Maura, a fact I note with some interest and surprise as I have always thought it a pretty name for a girl, despite the fact I know nothing about her save she was a martyr, there's an island in the Ionian group (now Lefkada) that was once named for her, and her companion in martyrdom was St. Britta, patroness of water filtration devices.
