Happy Birthday, Wolfie!

Today is the 250th birthday of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart!

His full name was Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Gottlieb Mozart. His patron saint was John Chrysostom, whose feast day is also today (hence, the first two parts of his moniker). The German Gottlieb was replaced at his baptism by the Greek Theophilus, but he is usually known nowadays by the Latin Amadeus. They all mean the same thing, "Lover of God."
