This is from the Orthodox-Convert discussion group.  I'm sure this mother won't mind my sharing these beautiful pictures of her sons being Baptised and Chrismated into the Orthodox Catholic faith -

I don't know how my kids will do as Orthodox Christians since I'm
not there myself. But my two youngest decided to be baptized in
June. Check out the looks on their faces:

Orthodoc,

Glory to Jesus Christ!

I couldn't help noticing that the two young boys were fully clothed for their immersion Baptisms.  Any reason for this?  Practicality of some sort perhaps?  Couldn't they have worn bathing suits instead at their age, and then have been clothed in the symbolic white robes of righteousness?

Do Eastern Orthodox always have their clothes on when they get baptized? I noticed that the boys were also called Moses and Samson respectively after they had been baptized; does this represent their Baptismal names? What role do God parents play in the Sacrament?

God Bless

Why do they have to pick new names?  Couldn't they be baptized with the sames ones they had?

This way they end up having two names.

If the convert's name isn't coincidentally that of an Orthodox saint, then he or she chooses or is given a new name.
