"Virtue" names for boys?

So I noticed that some friends of mine had given their daughters all virtue names for middles ([name]Joy[/name], [name]Hope[/name], [name]Grace[/name], [name]Faith[/name]). This got me wondering about virtue names for boys. The best ones I could come up with were [name]Earnest[/name], [name]Felix[/name] (happy) and [name]Clement[/name] (mercy).

Any other good ones that have been in traditional use? I’m not so much trying to think of words not in wide use for names (such as Courage or [name]Justice[/name]).

This is just a game for me, but a fun one. :slight_smile: Thanks.

Not very many of the boys ones are outright…

[name]Alvin[/name] - noble friend
Archiblad - noble
[name]Bly[/name] - friendly
[name]Brian[/name] - virtuous
[name]Brice[/name] - bright strength
[name]Darrell[/name] - beloved
[name]Ephraim[/name] - fruitful
[name]Finn[/name] - bright / fair
[name]Gay[/name] - not the best name nowadays
[name]Gareth[/name] - gentle
[name]Grady[/name] - noble
[name]Julian[/name] - youthful
[name]Kenzo[/name] - Strong


I just bumped up another post on this subject. Thought you might find something useful there! :slight_smile:

These are from my list: (* by the ones I [name]LOVE[/name])

There are a lot of other word names as well and such and names with virtuous meanings like [name]Bellamy[/name] (fine friend) but they’re a bit harder to weed out right now…
