I'm not sure where I'd put Destiny but it's certainly not a virtue / religious name in my mind although I'm sure to many, it might be. I do know of sibs named Trinity Grace and Destiny Love and I'm pretty sure the religious aspect was what the parents were going for (ack!).
It just seems like such a loaded name. It's too much to live up to. What if the child doesn't succeed in a conventional way? Was that her destiny? Then there's the girl of the same name my oldest dd had as a friend in high school who took her life. What a horrible event. What a horrible name to have been given in light of this. Sorry, this is probably TMI; I was just thinking about her today.
So no, Destiny doesn't belong with Grace, Mercy or Joy. I'd say it belongs with a more tryndee set of names.
