I understand that choosing a Confirmation name is optional and not intended to replace your legal name. I also understand you pick a saint to be a guide/patron to yourself. My question is what names can be chosen? Must it only be a saint’s name or can it be another type of religious name? Or can it be a different form of a saint’s name? For instance:
Dolores: in honor of Our Lady of Sorrows
Immaculata: in honor of the Immaculate Conception
Nativity: in honor of the Nativity of the Lord
Carolina: a derivative of the name Charles for Saint Charles
Thank you in advance.
