Can you pick someone from the Old Testament, such as David or Solomon or Samson?

Any of those three? What about others, such as the women?

I kinda thought Samson was a bit out there.

Holy OT women, sure. Samson is an interesting case. Was his feast ever celebrated?

There IS a St Sampson/Samson.

I'm not sure that Samson of the OT was ever venerated.

If I were in charge I would allow David and Josias, e.g., but not Solomon.
