1910 New Catholic Dictionary
(Christian name) From the earliest times names were given at Baptism.
A name is given, which should be taken from some person, whose eminent sanctity has given him a place in the catalogue of Saints. This similarity of name will stimulate to the imitation of his virtues and the attainment of his holiness. - Catechism of Trent
