The Catholic Church has a wonderful treasury of saints. Patron saints are saints of the Catholic Church who led lives of heroic virtue and became great Christian role models after their death and subsequent canonization. Parents are encouraged to give their children saint names as a way of encouraging them to live a similar life of saintly virtue - and for that saint to be a special intercessor for their child.
