Name Day in Russian?

Hi.  Here's a real quick question.  How would one wish in Russian a Happy(Blessed) Name day?  Thanks.

I think the French may be on to something here.

I think in Russian it's called the 'angel's day', день ангела, dyen' AHNGyela.

So:

[Поздравляю вас (familiar: тебя)] С днём ангела! ... [PahzdrahvlYAHyoo vahs (tebYA)] S dnyom AHNGyela! (Congratulations) On your name day!
