Picking The Popes Name

I was tlaking with a couple of people and we had a discussion on this topic and one of us mentioned to put it as a post to see if people no the answer... when the pope departs the pope usually keeps the same name for example. Anba Shenouda became Pope Shenouda but some popes change their name it doesn't stay the same as their bishop name, can anyone tell us where they get the new names from?


  • There is no myetsry to it. The synod when they're ordaining him give him any name, kinda like when abouna is baptizing a child and gives them the baptizm name.
  • lol again
