First I wish to apologise if this is in the wrong thread.
My Priest and I have been talking about confirmation. I am hoping to be confirmed Easter. Now for the background. When I was about 14/15 years old, I didn’t like my birth name (as many don’t at that age), so I chose to call myself Lioba for a few months. Now… I thought I made that name up. I liked unusual names back then. Now I did like the name jojoba, but obviously I couldn’t call myself that! Hahaha everyone knows it’s an oil. So, I decided to have something kinda similar. Hence Lioba because it rhymed and I liked the sound of it.
Back to 2013 over 20 years later. I was looking on a site for saints names to choose and read up on for a confirmation name. And what did I see going down the list…yes…St Lioba!!! I couldn’t believe it! I thought that I had made that name up all those years ago.
Does anyone think this is a sign from God to choose that name as a confirmation name??
Thanks in advance for your replies
