Each Candidate is expected to select a Confirmation name. In order to manifest the close relationship of Confirmation to Baptism, the selection of the Baptismal name is encouraged. The other alternative is to select the name of a Saint, who may have particular significance in the Candidate’s life. Each Candidate is required to do a report on the name that they will be using for Confirmation. This report gives the Candidates an opportunity to reflect on why their parents chose their Baptismal Name or, if choosing a different Confirmation name, they reflect on the Saint that they have chosen to honor by taking their name.
