On the general whole, I can’t get behind using virtue names just because they are virtue names, but I have come around to many of them. If they hold significance for other reason besides being a virtue name (i.e. naming a girl [name_f]Grace[/name_f] because of its connection to someone in your life you want to honor), then I can definitely appreciate the use more.

Either way, I would definitely say that paying attention to the full name is important with some of the virtue names. For example, a virtue name in my family is [name_f]Thankful[/name_f]. I doubt we could get away with this one today, especially since she was born [name_f]Thankful[/name_f] Weed and became [name_f]Thankful[/name_f] [name_u]Reed[/name_u] when she married.

I think virtue names are great, although it’s true that some people may see them negatively. [name_f]Prudence[/name_f] is a great name and I’d use it today, but [name_f]Chastity[/name_f], probably not. I actually like the name [name_f]Virtue[/name_f] in and of itself too!

Some of my favorites:

[name_m]Able[/name_m]
[name_f]Blessing[/name_f]
[name_u]Brave[/name_u]
[name_u]Comfort[/name_u]
[name_f]Faith[/name_f]/Faithful

[name_u]Honor[/name_u]
[name_f]Hope[/name_f]
Joyful
[name_u]Justice[/name_u]
[name_u]Love[/name_u]/Loving
[name_f]Mercy[/name_f]
[name_f]Patience[/name_f]
Perseverance

Verity is my biggest name crush right now. It sounds so fresh and lovely to me.

Honor for a girl is another of my top choices.
