the pope selects his name after he is chosen?

Report as

Yes. He has the "free will" to choose his Papal Name after he has been elected by a minimum two-third majority votes of the Cardinals.

All those in the running were told to be prepared to have name selected. So it's not like he was chosen and then he had to think of a name in 5 minutes.
