Hello everyone! I’m a 22 year old taking RCIA with the full intent of converting from Calivinst Baptist to Catholic.
I’ve already picked my Confirmation name–Teresa after Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta. I have a question though–I’ve heard that, if you wish, you can take TWO confirmation names.
Would it be alright if I took one for myself (Teresa) and one on behalf of someone else? The person I’m thinking about is a US infantryman who is a good friend and means a great, great deal to me. He’s a lapsed Catholic, but still considers himself to be a Christian. I was wondering if it would be alright to take St. Barbara in honor of him, or do Confirmation names soley have to be for myself only?
