Praise, well, seems like a weird name to me. When I hear it, I think of something more along the lines of praising the Lord.

Only young, naive, sappy religious nuts would use this ridiculous name on their child, and it's a pretty good sign that she will probably be home-schooled and taught to believe the world is 6000 years old and that prayer heals diseases.

How can you know that only young, naive, sappy religious nuts would use that name? It is fascinating how people know about your religious beliefs when they hear the names of your children. I think Praise is very pretty and makes a great middle name. It is uncommon and has a nice meaning.

I expected to see in the description for the name that it was used by Puritans, but... nope. It just has a Latin root. While the BtN poster slight_night_shiver (likely no longer active on here) has made comments about several other names that caused me to raise my eyebrows at her quickness to judge, in this I have to agree with her. If Praise is a child's first name, that's almost a guarantee that her parents are fanatics / zealots.

Even if you considered Praise as a middle name, and liked the sound... honestly, just go with Paige.

What can be better than praising God for blessing you with a precious child? The most natural thing you can do after the birth of a child is to Praise God and thank him for all your blessings. While this name is unusual, its meaning is beautiful.

The rapper DMX named his daughter Praise Mary.

This name is ridiculous. I agree with slight night shiver's comment: Praise as a name DOES sound like the name of the daughter of ultra-religious parents who believe everything in the Bible is literally true.

Could be cute if used with caution. I think it would be best used as a middle name with a more common first name for balance.

Praise should not be used for a name. Period.
