New name?


Again, I apologize! Still more questions about the whole name thing.

I am discerning the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. I would pick 2-3 names I liked. Mother superior would pick one with the help of God. What are the rules for picking the names on my part?


Since I am unfamiliar with the traditions of the DSMME, I am just taking a wild guess, but in most orders, you usually choose your favorite saints and write down names that are not being used by any of the other Sisters. :slight_smile:
