Hello, I’m expecting to receive baptism on this Christmas, and I wanted to use the word ‘obedience’ in its Latin form (I’m not sure about the word; there seem to be a lot of variations of the word in Latin) as my baptismal name for my personal reasons. I just wanted to be sure if this is allowed in the church. I think it should be allowed considering how Jesus changed the name of Peter, but it seems like most people here choose their baptismal name as that of a saint, which I didn’t like that much.
If it is not possible, I want to go with Faustina (St. Faustina Kowalska), but again I’m not sure if I can use it since I’m using a woman’s name. It should be OK, right?
Thanks in advance
