Comments for CHARITY:

Perhaps from the ancient Greek name "Charito". In ancient Greece, Charito was a very famous for her beauty "Hetaira".

I think that the name has such a wonderful meaning to it. It's not the typical name for someone to give their child since it has nothing special about how it sounds, but I think that the meaning is what really matters in this case.

This name is both pretty and has meaning. I like this name.

I don't think it should be used as a name, especially if a person with this name was selfish and didn't give money to charity.

In the King James Version of the Bible, the word charity is used instead of love.

The main character in the musical Sweet Charity is named Charity. It is a very good play and Charity is a very sweet girl.

I think that the word is still too commonly used to be a good name. Also, I immediately associate it with the phrase "Charity Case".

"Sweet Charity" is a popular musical, first appearing on Broadway in 1966 and the West End in 1967. The musical revolves around Charity Hope Valentine, a dance hall hostess. Three actresses have received Tony Award nominations for the role: Gwen Verdon (1966), Debbie Allan (1988), and Christina Applegate (2005). In the 1969 film adaption, the character was portrayed by Shirley MacLaine, who received a Golden Globe nomination for the role.

This name had better suit the bearer's personality by chance. The name is somewhat maudlin, and it sounds quite strange as a name.

"Charity" is one of the tree theological virtues, with faith and hope. The Greek word "agape" (ἀγάπη), translated by "love" or "Charity", refers to a strong love (for one's child or spouse, for example). Since Charity is now a synonym of generosity (but it formerly meant "love"), the three virtues are more often said to be faith, hope, and love.

My name is Charity and I love it! My mom felt it on her heart from God to name me Charity. It basically means love. I always have my name to live up to! =D

I know a lady that goes to my church in her mid 20's that has this name, it's very pretty, easy to spell, and it suits her well. It's also very dignified, but not too common. Her niece calls her "Aunt T", and being rednecks from Mississippi it's pretty much pronounced "AINT TEE".

It sounds a little weird at the beginning, but then you understand it's a very beautiful name.

A famous bearer of this name is Charity Dingle, from the UK soap drama Emmerdale, played by Emma Atkins. :)

I really want to name my daughter this. It does sound a bit old-fashioned, but it's pretty enough to make up for that, and you won't have to worry about six other kids in the class with the same name.
-- Aurora Lynn  12/11/2009
Why not use this name? :) It's a sweet name and it is--most of all--HOPEFUL. Sure that person may not live up to their name completely, but do any of us really? My name means "worthy of love," but I definitely don't feel that way sometimes. The name Charity is inspiring and I think you will be speaking blessing on your child whenever you speak their name. Isn't that also important in a name? It's also refreshing when comparing it to many of the more popular names today. I personally wouldn't mind using it one day, in honor of my mom, Cheryl, as the two names look a little alike. I don't know. I think it might be cute. :)

I really like this! It's pretty!

This is a beautiful name for a young girl.

I love most of the puritan names, but this one is just too cheeky and it reminds me of the lies of many of today's charities, definitely not on my list, which is sad because it was so pretty back in the 17th century.
