Baptism Names The Second Commandment: You Shall Not Take the Name of the Lord Your God in Vain. 

What does it mean for a Christian to be baptized with a particular name?

“In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”, the person is baptized with a name. The name and the face are ultimately what make a person unique, even in God’s sight. “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine” (Is 43:1).

Christians treat the name of a person reverently, because the name is profoundly connected with that person’s identity and dignity. From time immemorial Christians have selected names for their children from the list of the saints; they do so in the belief that the patron saint is an example for them and will intercede with God for them in a special way. (YOUCAT question 361)
