I picked St. Anne because that’s my middle name, and I also thought it was cool that she was Mary’s mom & Jesus’ grandma, lol.  Now that I see she’s the patron saint of unmarried women and housewives I have to chuckle a bit.  Perfect match for me.

I chose St. Joan (Joan of Ark).  I thought she was brave and was relatable.

St Francis, the patron saint of animals.  I think that was when my mom realized I wasn’t going to outgrow my plan to become a vet. 🙂

Ruth.. She is a Saint, but not a patron of anything, I picked because it is a family name. My Great Great Aunt who was Ruthie, I want to be like her so I chose a saint name that would remind me to follow in her chose. I did not have any idea how this would impact my family but when my grandpa, who was very close to her, found out he teared up no explanation needed he knew why

St. Margaret of Scotland. I just thought she had a neat story. Then all day on my confirmation day my mom called me Margaret, which I thought was really weird. What can I say, she grew up Methodist. 🙂

My husband got confirmed young and now can’t remember his confirmation name. Sad!

I chose St. Gemma Galgani. Like you, I wanted to have a patron who was young and female. She also had stigmata!

I chose St. Catherine of Siena because I wished my name was Catherine (5 of the 13 girls in my class had a name that derived from Catherine) and I’ve always loved Italy.

I guess my reasons were a bit selfish and immature. 😉

St Dorothy – patron saint of brides, florists, and gardeners.  Works well for now!  I originally picked it because I just loved the name.  Oh, teenage years.
