We receive a couple alumni magazines, and every time I see one in the mail I get excited and plan my day around when I can sit and savor the names of alumni’s children as listed in the class notes section (called different things by different schools).
One I get particularly excited about because of its alumni’s penchant for having large families and bestowing uber Catholic names on its children, as well as the announcement of vow-taking and new names by religious and priests, is that of Franciscan University of Steubenville. It just arrived today and I found in its class notes section (cleverly called “Alma Matters”) the following that caught my eye:
Girls named Avila (x2!) and Christiana
Boys named Dominic, Ignatius, and Fulton
A recently professed sister who took the name Pia of John Paul
