My suspicions are that we should understand TO ONOMA to be repeated
before TOU hUIOU and before TOU hAGIOU PNEUMATOU, so that we get in
EIS TO ONOMA TOU PATROUS KAI (TO ONOMA) TOU hUIOU KAI (TO ONOMA) TOU
Some who take it so practice triune immersion. This is where the
baptismal candidate is immersed three times. There is good evidence to
believe the early church took it this way, as reflected in the writings
of the early church fathers.
