Catholic Christian Name
A First name is often referred to as Christian names.
Catholic Christian names share similar first, or
Christian name's, with other Christian and non -
Catholic Christian countries. These 'shared' Christian
names differ from country to country according to the
language and the spellings and pronunciations of them
therefore also vary. The Catholic church encouraged the
use of biblical naming from the New Testament and those
of Saint's. Old Testament ones were not commonly used by
Christians until the 18th century. The language of
origin of the 'Christian name' was therefore Latin,
Hebrew or Greek. Much of Europe adhered to the Catholic
religion up to the Renaissance period of the 16th
Century. Catholic name's were therefore commonly used in
Portugal, Britain, France, Spain and Italy.

a name they can therefore give us a distinct advantage
in life, or conversely, a disadvantage! The choice of a
