Saint Tremorus of Brittany
Tremorus was born sometime in the 6th century in Brittany, France. His mother was Saint Triphina.
According to SQPN, he was murdered while being educated at a monastery in Carhaix, Brittany. Acording to other sources however, he was murdered while still an infant. The murderer was his own stepfather, Count Canmore of Brittany. The motive for the murder was the Count's hatred of Christianity. After the murder of her son, Triphina retired to a convent.

The four crowned Martyrs
During the reign of Emperor Diocletian, four people, namely, Castorius, Claudius, Nicostratus, and Symphorian were tortured and executed in Pannonia, Hungary. They are the ones referred to as the "The four crowned Martyrs".
According to legend, these four were employed as carvers at the imperial quarries at Sirmium, former Yugoslavia. They impressed the Emperor with their carvings so much that he commissioned them to do several others. This they did and the Emperor was satisfied. Trouble arose when the Emperor wanted them to curve a pagan statue, specifically, that of Aesculapius. The four men refused on the basis that they were Christians. Then they were asked to sacrifice to the pagan gods and again they refused. They were imprisoned. While in prison, an officer, Lampadius, who had been trying to convince them to sacrifice to the pagan gods, suddenly died. The four were blamed for his death. They were executed in 305. A fifth martyr named, Simplicius, was executed with them.
According to Our Sunday Visitor’s Encyclopedia of Saints, by Matthew Bunson, Margaret Bunson, and Stephen Bunson, there were in fact two sets of Sancti Quatuor Coronati, , i.e.The four Holy Crowned Ones. The second croup died at Albano Italy. They were Carpophorus, Secundius, Severian and Victorinus. A basilica was erected in honor of these martyrs in Rome.
The four crowned Martyrs,

What a good example they are of what Christianity is! Not to have pagan idols, not to create them, not to sacrifice to them!

I love the martyr's name of Simplicius! St. Simplicius, Castorius, Claudius, Nicostratus, and Symphorian, pray for us!

Symphorian certainly has a sonorous name! I wonder hmm, what the name meanings of the others might be. Nico-stratus. Stratus sounds like a cloud. Nico sounds like Nicomedia a place. But I am just guessing. Castor sounds like castor oil but I definitely don't think that's it.  happy roll

Wonder how my children would feel if I had named them Castorius, Claudius, Nicostratus, and Symphorian?  Undecided Would they still love me? Cheesy  Claudius is still okay.

Yes, they would still love you but I doubt you would be given the honor of naming your grand kids  Grin
