"Good Friday" is not a universal name for the day. But its usage varies from countries to countries.

In the Holy Land, Good Friday is known as "GREAT FRIDAY." In Germany it is "Friday of Lamentation" and PASSION OF FRIDAY. In Armenian it is called "HIGH FRIDAY". But in Russian it is called "PASSION FRIDAY" and in Chinese, "PASSION FRIDAY" and "Day of Christ's Suffering".

HOLY FRIDAY: Latin America, Spain, France, Italy, Portu ...more

There are many versions to this : some say it is a corruption of the word god, some say it is good because it falls before easter which signifies the rising of Christ, His victory over sin and death.
