    Keeping the same name for Baptism and Confirmation is a growing trend also in the RCIA process. It is done this way to show the continuity between those two sacraments. The Catechism of the Catholic Church tells us that Confirmation is a fulfillment of the gift of the Holy Spirit that is begun in us at Baptism. Therefore the name that is used is encouraged to be the same for each. I don’t know how universally that is observed, but it is nationally “encouraged” by the North American Forum on the Catechumenate.
