Why are we supposed to name our children after saints?


I&#039;m not a Catholic, but my wife is. We&#039;ve decided to have our two children baptized and brought up as Catholics. We&#039;ve been getting instructions from the parish. We were advised to pick a saint&#039;s name for each of the children. Why is that done?
