The tradition of adopting a new name for one’s Confirmation is rooted in Scripture. Often times, when a person received a new mission from God, they were given a new name as well (Abram to Abraham in Genesis 17:5, Jacob to Israel in Genesis 32:28, Simon to Peter in Matthew 16:18). In Confirmation, you receive a new mission to spread of the love of God, and you’re invited to choose a Saint Name to symbolize this.
