I'd have to go with St. Paul (naturally) at the top of the list, then Aquinas, Augustine, and Peter, in no particular order.

I'm partial to St. Edwin of Northumbria, who I picked as my confirmation saint.

Mother (especially as Our Lady of Mt Carmel), Sts. Joseph, Therese, Teresa, Aquinas, Alphonsus in particular. Kind of fond of St. Simplicius because I dig the name. ;)
