I thought Catholicism held that particular honor.
The number thirteen and the enemy of God
The enemies of God and his people, as named in Scripture, are generally multiples of 13. The primary example of this is the great enemy himself, Satan. Although we may give the English for the sake of clearness, the Gematria (the values formed by the letters of the words themselves) are always based on the original Hebrew or Greek:
Satan, in Hebrew = 364 (13 x 28)
Satan, in Greek = 2197 (133)
"That old serpent, even Satan" = 2756 (13x212)
"Ha-Seraph" (Numbers 21:8) = 585 (13x45)
Beelzebub = 598 (13 x 46)
Belial - 78 (13x6)
Dragon (Revelation 12:9) = 975 (13 x 75)
Serpent = 780 (13x60)
Murderer = 1820 (13 x 140)
Tempter = 1053 (13x81)
The Scape-goat = 585 (13 x 45)
The Lion (Psalm 91:13) = 338 (13x26)
"As a Lion" (1Peter 5:8) = 1885 (13 x 145)
"The Power of the Enemy" (Luke 10:9) = 2509 (13 x 193)
"Your adversary, the Devil, as a roaring lion" = 6032 (13x464)
Fowler (Psalm 91:3) = 416 (13x32)
"Who is called the Devil and Satan" = 2197 (133)
"Seven Devils" = 572 (13 x 44)
"Because the Prince of this world is judged" (John 16:11) = 5577 (132x33)
"When he speaketh a lie he speaketh of his own, for he is a liar" (John 8:44) = 7072 (13x544)
The longest book name and number 13
The longest name of a Bible book, Thessalonians, is 13 characters.
Additional commentary on the Biblical Meaning of 13 *
The number thirteen is associated with rebellion and depravity and is used fifteen times in the Bible. All the names of Satan are divisible by thirteen. Nimrod, the chief rebel after the flood, was the thirteenth in the line of Ham. In their thirteenth year of servitude, the kings of the nations rebelled (Genesis 14:4). Twelve represents the government of God and thirteen represents the governments of men in rebellion against God.

Do you believe that semantics can change prophecy?
Can changing a name change destiny?
Ultimately it isn't what is in a name, or what a person does in life, it is what is in the soul that matters.
Just added food for thought.

That is what is annoying me.
He's not called "Peter the first"- just Peter. Since there hasn't been a second one, "the first" is not necessary.
Similarly, by all the conventions, this Pope should be calling himself just "Francis".
Baal of the Canaanites called Satan the Devil. Baal correlates with Amun of Egypt, Ares of Greece, Mars of Rome, Marduk of Babylon – the solar calf that slowly rose into the top position, and Bel in Sumer that also uses the name Marduk. The Sumer stories of Bel are rather hidden. In the Canaanite narrative, Baal was the son of El, as with the others stories, humans perceived Baal as a son. Ares the son of Zeus is the god of war in the Greek mythology. Amun the son of Ra in Egypt is the storm god. Mars, the six-pointed star, the son of Juniper, is the storm god in Roman mythology. All these identifications are referring to Satan the Devil
Middle English March(e)
Old English Martius
Latin Martius “of Mars”
Latin Marti(s) “Mars” + -us (adj. suffix)
Latin Martius mensis “month of Mars”
Martius has always had 31 days. (13 reversed)
March was the original beginning of the year, and the time for the resumption of war.
Mars is the Roman god of war. He is identified with the Greek god Ares.
