the pope selects his name after he is chosen?
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.
that is what I heard
Wasn't it Francisco or something like that
Yes I think so...
yes he chose Pope Francis the 1st
Yup! Pope Francis the 1st!!!!!
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.
