In the Christian P Oxy VIII. 1162.5 Λέων πρεσβύτερος τοῖς. . . πρεσβυτ [ ]ροις καὶ διακώνοις ἀ [γ ]απητοῖ [ς ] ἀδελφοῖς ἐν κ (υρί)ῳ θ (ε)ῷ χαρᾷ χα [ ]ρειν, ";Leon, presbyter, to the presbyters and deacons, beloved brothers in the Lord God, fullness of joy"; (Ed.), we have an ex. of the cogn. dat., as in Joh. 3:29 : for a corresponding usage in the LXX, cf. Thackeray Gr. i. p. 48 ff.

Χαρά is common as a proper name : see Preisigke Namenbuch s.v. In MGr the word is used for a ";festival,"; ";wedding.";
