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.
The Importance of First Names!
We respond to our name throughout our lives. People associate us with our first name, it forms part of our identity. They help to distinguish us from one to another. Other people gain immediate and sometimes totally subconscious views of people, just from hearing a name they can therefore give us a distinct advantage in life, or conversely, a disadvantage! The choice of a Catholic Baby name is, therefore, incredibly important. And those of us who choose a baby's name are taking on a responsible task!
