Q. 1. What other Titles are given to the Holy SPirit?

A. 1. In older Bibles, the "Holy Spirit" is referred to as the "Holy Ghost." Having mentioned this, Titles by which the Holy Spirit is known are:

The "Advocate" (Counselor, Helper, Paraclete, Comforter) [Jn. 14:16, 26, 15:26, 16:7, 1 Jn. 2:1]
The "Spirit of Truth" [Jn. 14:17, 15:26, 16:13]
The "Spirit of the Promise" [Gal. 3:14, Eph. 1:13]
The "Spirit of Adoption" [Rom. 8:15]
The "Spirit of Christ" [Rom. 8:9]
The "Spirit of the Lord" [2 Cor 3:17]
The "Spirit of God" [Rom. 8:9, 8:14, 15:19, 1 Cor. 6:11, 7:40, 1 Pet. 4:13]
The "Spirit of Glory" [1 Pet. 4:13]
The "Spirit of His Son" [Gal. 4:6]

The Catechism of the Catholic Church (C.C.C.) makes the following references regarding the Titles of the Holy Spirit.

Titles of the Holy Spirit

C.C.C. # 692 When he proclaims and promises the coming of the Holy Spirit, Jesus calls him the "Paraclete," literally, "he who is called to one's side," ad-vocatus. "Paraclete" is commonly translated by "consoler," and Jesus is the first consoler. The Lord also called the Holy Spirit "the Spirit of truth."

C.C.C. # 693 Besides the proper name of "Holy Spirit," which is most frequently used in the Acts of the Apostles and in the Epistles, we also find in St. Paul the titles: the Spirit of the promise, the Spirit of adoption, the Spirit of Christ, the Spirit of the Lord, and the Spirit of God - and, in St. Peter, the Spirit of glory.
