Dear Curt,

I have heard of what you are talking about but do not know the source.  Hopefully, I can remember; but I doubt it because I remember it only in reference to the Roman Catholic practice of selecting a new name when one becomes a "soldier of God" -- with God becoming the commander in chief -- for confirmation, usually in one's late teenage years.
