"Pope Francis" is Bergoglio of Buenos Aires

Here's some background on him.

He's a Jesuit. Or was a Jesuit. I don't know if you're a Jesuit forever or you stop being a Jesuit when you move up in the hierarchy.

Sullivan's reacts here, a bit more restrained than I was expecting.

"Francis:" He's chosen his papal name, "Francis." I asked @fredosso who picks that and he says the pope himself.

So he's a Stripes fan. That's a good sign.

No but really Francis Xavier was the first Jesuit to be pope. Thanks to @drewmtips.

Gateway Pundit says the actual name is "Franciscum." I don't know which is correct, or if Franciscum is formal and "Francis" is informal.

Oops: Francis Xavier was the first Jesuit (co-founder, so it's a tie), not the "first Jesuit pope" as I said. Francis I (Bergoglio) is the first Jesuit pope.

Thanks to @tsrblke.
