I am not yet even baptized but if and when I do, I will also have to be confirmed apparently. Now I don’t know who my Patron saint is going to be yet, but I’m thinking st Clare of Assisi (I want to go into the television/movie business. I am a male) or whoever is the Patron saint of social workers ( I want to volunteer and help seniors) ooh or even St George! I don’t know why
Strange thing is I’m good at making connections between people and who their patron saint should be, but can’t for myself. For my mother I always thought saint Helena would be appropriate and St. Sebastian for my brother who loves sports (This was before I found out about how the saint was killed and now I have my doubts)
I am sure I want my confirmation name to be Evan but know only one saint named Evan (actually it was Inan) who I don’t find any connection to. Is it okay if I choose a different patron saint like the two above?
P.s - Unrelated- Is it okay if I use my confirmation name as my real name from then on? I like it alot
