Didn't quite get this far in Catholicism, but for the name part of it I think Bernadette goes really well with your name, even if it is a tad over-the-top. Therese is a much more modest choice (name style wise) and flows just as well; 'Gemma' is too close to the 'Becca' in your first name for it to work for me though.
Unfortunately, I'm not well-versed in saints; I was not a very attentive Catholic. Hope I helped out anyway.I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

Why don't you look at this Catholic saints site? It's a pretty good resource to help with names and more importantly gives a brief biography of them.

I'm not a practicing Catholic anymore though, I now attend a non-denominational church, so I have no cause to use it these days.♥ Margaret Mary ♥

Welcome to Catholicism! It is very hard picking a confirmation Saint. I picked St. Thérèse for myself, and my mother picked St. Bernadette, so of course I love them both. And St. Gemma was great too : ) Someone else already mentioned St. Eulalia (I just discovered her). I would like to add, by the way, that you can pick both male and female Saints, it's not restricted to your specific gender. My sister picked St. Sebastian.Julian Balthasar Fox-Piers Raphael St John-Arthur Horatio Becket
