Catholic Saints

From Naming Schemes
Jump to: navigation, search

This list is pretty good from A to M but the rest is weak: someone work on those letters of the alphabet. The names here are a sort of "best of" list of canonical saints, according to my taste; of course it is not a complete hagiographical list.

I (someone other than the one above) added a handful more that I came across during my search for saints that were somehow relevant to the job the computer is doing.

Another useful practice is to go the Catholic Saint of the Day and pick from the list; usually about 10 per day.
