Confirmation Names for Boys
Special confirmation names are chosen in many English and German speaking countries for a person being confirmed in the Roman Catholic Church (and some Anglican dioceses). It is customary to adopt the name of a saint as a protector and a guide. Saint's names adopted as confirmation names are often used in conjunction with the middle name, but Confirmation names are without effect in civil law, unless, the appropriate legal routes are followed.
Confirmation Names - the Names of Catholic Saints
Confirmation names are usually taken from the name of a Catholic saint and are chosen by the person to be confirmed. The term 'Saint' is used to describe a person who is perceived of being an example of great holiness and virtue and considered capable of interceding with God on behalf of a person who prayed to them. A saint is a person who has died and has been declared a saint by canonization. The Roman Catholic Church has an official process for creating saints.
