Faith is the title of the first book in the Brides of the West series by Lori Copeland. It's a great book, you should read it.

Faith, the Rogue Vampire Slayer (played by Eliza Dushku), on 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'.

I really hate names that are frilly like this. Mainly Faith, Grace, and Hope.

I think the name Faith is a beautiful name. Someone close to me whom I care for is named this - she is anything but frilly, or prissy. It's a name that calls to mind feminity but also strength and sincerity. It certainly beats names like Danny (and all its other spellings/variations which are simply used in an attempt to spice up a boring, common, lifeless, uninspired, silly, without-meaning, overused name).

While I don't usually enjoy names after virtues (e.g. Grace, Hope, Charity), I do like Faith, probably because I used to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer, where Eliza Dushku played Faith as one user mentioned. I have always liked to spell the name 'Faith' as 'Fhaythe' because it looks a lot more interesting that way although the original spelling is all right as well.

Faith is such a nice name. It also works well as a middle name.

Actress Kelly Ripa's character on the ABC comedy "Hope & Faith" was Faith Fairfield, the struggling, has-been soap star sister of homemaker Hope Shanowsky (played by actress Faith Ford).

I think I like the name Faith better than Hope. I just could not see an 80 year old called Hope but I could with Faith because you could change it to Fay which is nice and suits and old person well or a teen and up. Fay Fay is cute for a little kid!
-- Philippa  9/11/2006
If you had twin girls you could call them Hope and Faith. Cute!
-- Philippa  9/11/2006
I think this name is very cute! :-) I prefer it as a middle name since it has only one syllable. The name Faith reminds me of a very FAITHFUL and HAPPY person.
-- Taydbug112  11/14/2006
This is my name. But I really don't think it suits me. It'd be better for someone else. I'm not very faithful and I really don't have a Faith.

Faith Brown is an impressionist.

I love this name. My best friend is named this. She is not frilly, prissy, or anything else like that. She is very kind.
-- Carli3  5/21/2007
You could also spell it Fayth.

I like FAITH for a middle name, not first. I like the name Adelaide Faith.
-- applemilk  9/4/2007
I wasn't too keen on any virtue names, but since reading a certain book (Jodi Picoult's "Keeping Faith") my idea of Faith at least has completely changed. I've even started using it in my own stories, I think it's really cute and strong.
-- Weaponstar  10/14/2007
I think this is a lovely name! If you want to name your daughter something short, sweet, and uncomplicated, this is the name for you! It has a great meaning and it's not that hard to spell or pronounce. I personally wouldn't use this as a first name, I would probably use it as a middle name. Plus, if you had twin girls, you could name them Hope and Faith. So cute! A cute nickname would be Faithie.
-- Miss Commenter  11/6/2007
Not a bad name. I prefer it as a middle name, though.
-- Anonymous User  11/20/2007
Faith has a beautiful sound and an even more beautiful meaning.

A famous bearer is American stage actress Faith Prince (born August 5, 1957). On Broadway, she has starred in 'Jerome Robbins' Broadway' in 1989, the 1992 revival of 'Guys and Dolls' (winning a Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical), and 'The King and I.'

Although religious beliefs aren't the only thing that requires faith, this name is distinctly religious, and a bit sentimental and tacky. Atheists would hardly pick this name, as they'd rather not take things on faith as a rule, unless something just cannot be proven.
-- slight night shiver  4/22/2008
I love this name. I didn't choose my nickname out of religious meanings, but because I had 'Faith' in myself and that helped me through some hard times.
-- Faithy  4/23/2008
I really don't like this name. Faith, Hope, Melody, Chastity. It's so WRONG naming a child after a well known, important word. And so obnoxious.
-- somethingorother  6/4/2008
I love this name. Faith has helped me through the hardest times in my life. Now as far as naming your kid this; that would truly depend. I like what it means and stands for. But that's me.
-- _0TophasNails_1  11/19/2008
The religious connotations turn me off this name. Being rational is more important than being faithful.
-- vomiting  3/6/2009
My name is Faith. I actually love my name! But not just because it's pretty, pure, and inviting- I was named this for a reason. There were problems with me being born, but I came out perfectly fine. I don't feel pressure to be perfect or trustworthy. Although I do believe I'm very loyal- but not because of my name. And, Faith doesn't mean perfect, as far as I know of! I accept your opinion if you say it's a frilly name. But, I'm also very strong, bold, and unique. Just like my name. I can't imagine being named anything else! Actually, this name has been becoming more popular. My best friend is named Faith (How ironic?!). So, for those of you who think this is a terrible name, and that it's hard to live up to, THINK AGAIN~
-- Faithie  3/7/2009
I love this as a middle name.
-- kool_babe14  5/12/2009
It is a sweet name, yet it still can be mature. Love it! (:
-- RosePetals016  6/11/2009
My little sister's name is Faith. She is a beautiful, sweet little girl, the name Faith gives a person an automatic thumbs up because the name is so pretty and classy.
-- Anonymous User  6/22/2009
I love the name Faith, even with the religious connotations. I've probably been influenced by the aforementioned Faith from Buffy The Vampire Slayer, but oh well. I usually don't like names like this (e.g. Grace, Hope, Joy), but I make an exception for Faith. Also, butchering the spelling of a name does not make a name better. So, stop trying to make the spelling 'creative' and just name her Faith!

Oh, and there's a bipedal dog named Faith. Just thought I should add that.
-- Anonymous User  6/27/2009
I'm not too fond of this name, since it sounds too religious and kind of trashy. Still, at least it sounds better than "virtue names" such as Destiny, Heaven, and Miracle.
-- bananarama  9/3/2009
Anyone called Faith who isn't actually anorexic will get called Fat Faith or Faith the Fatty at school.
-- Anonymous User  10/3/2009
I love this name. It isn't tacky and I like Hope too. But Faith is my favorite word name. It's so pretty.
-- italiannames  10/21/2009
Tacky, cheesy, and blatant. I thought names were about the meaning or history behind the word, not the word itself?
-- Aureliano  1/16/2010
A friend of mine named her little girl Faith, after the slayer on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. So we always think of it as a strong, powerful name, not anything particularly religious.
-- amanda82  2/10/2010
There are some Puritan names I like, and some Puritan names I despise. This is one of the names I despise.
-- Dawson  11/25/2010
It's a pretty name, but I don't like the religious connotations.

Faith and her younger sister, Liberty's, murder was a wake-up call to law enforcement, who over the next fewyears proceeded to make more airtight, protective domestic violence and abuse laws.
-- DaphneSusan  1/9/2011
I don't like this name. It's so childish. It makes me think of a skinny girl who talks way too much.
-- Black_X  2/22/2011
Faith Margaret - daughter of Keith Urban & Nicole Kidman. Named Faith as they said it would take a lot of Faith to have another child. Margaret is after Nicole's grandmother.

I love this name! It's such a simple and beautiful name. I love the name Faith Evangeline.

Every time I hear this name, I automatically think of the song "Faith" by George Michael.
-- Anonymous User  9/1/2011
The word is hard to pronounce, kind of lispy.
-- Anonymous User  9/14/2011
I've always considered Faith to be a very religious name. Religious, not Christian. I love the name Faith (or Hope) for a little girl because I am putting my faith (or hope) in the world in her. She will embody the best in humanity and her name will show that. (All parents have big dreams for their kids.)
-- Cuss10  2/9/2012
This is my sisters name. My name is Hope and I have another sister named Charity. Kinda weird. Faith, Hope, and Charity.

American child actress Faith Wladyka (born 2004 in New York City).
-- Anonymous User  8/11/2012
Faith is a great name that goes into a deep meaning. Many babies who have trouble being born are named or middle named this, so it shouldn't be a hated name. I really dislike the names Hope, Destiny and Charity but I'm a fan of Faith. It isn't too sassy or dull. Faiths are very kind- I know one and even though she's blonde, flexible and skinny, is really caring and nice. FAITH RULES!
-- Melys11  12/18/2012
Faith also is very inspiring.
-- Melys11  12/18/2012
Well, seeing how so many religious names are becoming so trendy and *over*popular, I guess it's not a surprise that this is in the top 100. But... It's a little too religious. When you think about it, "Faith" is kind of a strange thing to name your daughter. It's kind of sweet, but a little odd. But that's just coming from someone who doesn't typically like virtue names, with the exception of Grace and Hope.
-- Anonymous User  4/14/2013
I LOVE this name! It looks great, sounds great and the meaning is... you guessed it... great!
