The new pope's name

Apparently the newly elected pope gets to choose his own name.

According to Sarah in the comments to this recent post, all the cardinals will be preoccupied with dreaming up names right now, just in case (like the rest of us would be dreaming up acceptance speeches).

SunnyO: The next pope?

So I'm inviting the three of you who read this to submit some suggestions. I'm interested in 1) likely names, 2) names they probably won't choose, but should, and 3) names they definitely won't be using.


1) Pope John Paul III
2) Pope James Dean
3) Pope Michael Jackson
