  1. We always give names of Saints to our children so we can follow their example and Agnes is not the exception, it means pure, chaste and it’s the name of two really exemplary saints: Saint Agnes of Rome and Mother Teresa of Calcuta ( That’s her birth name )

  2. Family tradition. Irish immigrants who came over on the ship St Agnes.
