What do you call St. Vincent?

The inhabitants of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines are technically known as Vincentians; they are also known informally as Vincies or Vincys. The word "Vincent" is derived from the Latin name Vincentius, which in turn comes from Vincius, a Roman knight who was born in Spain and died in A.D. 64.

Saint Vincent was named after its founder, Vincentius, who was born in Spain and died in A.D. 64. He was a soldier in the Roman army who later took monastic vows. Vincent traveled to Gaul where he became popular among the people because of his kindness toward them. He eventually returned to Rome where he was made judge by Emperor Nero. However, during his tenure as judge, Vincent was accused of treason by his former comrades in arms and sentenced to death. Only his miraculous survival of this execution led to the beginning of his future career as a holy man. After many years on earth, Vincent was taken to heaven by an angel who showed him all the sins that had been committed against God. In horror, Vincent begged for forgiveness but the angel told him that there was nothing more that he could do for him so he departed. It is said that Vincent continued to pray until he saw a vision of Jesus Christ who reassured him that he had done enough for others by surviving his own execution.

Vincent was born on 2 August 1827 in Zundert, Netherlands. He was the youngest child of a prosperous farmer family. At an early age, he showed a desire to become a priest. When he was only 12 years old, his parents sent him to Rome to study for six years at the Jesuit College of St. Andrew. Upon completion of his studies, he returned home and took up residence in a small hut on his father's farm. Here he lived as a hermit for several years before being discovered by a neighbor who had come to borrow water. After returning home, Vincent began painting pictures that attracted attention from local people and sold well enough for him to be able to buy more paint and materials for further work. In 1879, Vincent moved to Paris where he spent the last three years of his life. During this time, he produced many paintings that today are worth millions of dollars. He died on 29 July 1890 in Auvers-sur-Oise, France.
