How would you like a little extra special protection added to the other assets of your baby’s name? Patron saints are guardians over particular aspects of life—they can defend against an illness, or look out for people practicing a certain occupation or other interest. Sometimes these assignments were set centuries ago, others have been made more recently, as in the cases of ecology, advertising, computer technicians and television. Here are some of the most usable and interesting patron saint names, with their special areas of protection.
Adelaide—can be invoked against in-law problems; protects parents of large families, stepparents, widows, abuse victims
Agnes—is a protector of young girls, Girl Scouts
Apollonia—protects against toothaches, and is the patron saint of dentists
