I think Hope is a great name with a lovely meaning. It sounds simple but that isn't necessarily such a bad thing. I would prefer it as a middle name but either is fine.
Beautiful.
Pretty. I like it better than Faith (but it is fine too) and it doesn't sound super religious but neutral to me.
I think this is a wonderful name, sweet and kind. It can be used as a first name, too. You guys don't need to be so ignorant! The word makes it better!
This name is a favorite among housewives who watch too many soap operas along with Bo, Kayla, Roman, Sami, Carter, Brooke, Ridge, and Erica.

Middle name ONLY.

It's fine as a middle name, but it sounds juvenile as a first name. I prefer Nadia, which means the same thing.

Nothing bad about this but I just don’t like the sound of it. If you’re aiming for a name meaning Hope, how about Amal or Nadia?
Beautiful name. I don’t mind that it’s a word, there are so many word names that are normalized and I’m positive this name will be too.
My name is Hope. I like it and don't like it at the same time. I love it because it has a great meaning. And it's so pretty (that's what everyone says). But it gets really annoying when people say "I have Hope for you" or "You must be hopeful/hopeless." But it's a beautiful name.
I really like this name but I wouldn’t use it as a first name, it’s so short for me. It’s a nice middle name though if I ever have a daughter, Aurelia Hope would be a really pretty name.
This name is beautiful and my best friend's name is this and I love her.
I've seen like a million people with this name. It's so boring and overused.

I think Hope is okay as a middle name only.
I named my daughter Hope. It has a lot more meaning for me. I tried to get pregnant for 7 long years and was about to give up. I was so down. My then husband put his arms around me and tried to comfort me. He tried to encourage me but after a while he was about to give up. He looked at me and said all we can do is just Hope. I thought about it and agreed to try one more time. Two months later I found out I was pregnant with twins! We both agreed that our daughter's name should be Hope.
There's nothing wrong with this as a name, but it seems too literal to me. I would prefer Nadia which also means Hope.
My name is Hope and I think it's a unique and beautiful name.
I like it, I don’t think it’s a dumb name at all.
Dumb name.
Hope is a very pretty name. I think it could be used for a male however it wouldn’t work in all regards, whether he’s tough, humorous or sweet, in which I can only see a sweet guy having this name (Pretty much any male character in a Shoujo manga). To be honest, I think the word Hope is pretty but I just don’t really see it as a name as it’s just a word, like apple or drawer. If you like this name, that’s cool, I wouldn’t mind seeing a girl or boy named Hope, just not my type of name personally.
Hope is my middle name. I like the meaning of it (I try to be a hopeful person), but I'm not sure it works as a first name.

My name is Hope Mose! I always ask my mom why did she name me Hope? Her reply to me was that the doctors told her she would never have any more children and she asks God to grant her more kids.

I love this name sooo much. However, like other users have said, I'm afraid it'll just sound too much like a word rather than a name. But this word is so important to me, so I can't help but love it. If I don't use it as a first name, definitely a middle name.
My name's Hope. I used to hate it when I was a kid but now I love it because it's so unique. Although it is getting more popular, you do get the odd comments "Why are you called that" as if your parents had a miracle or are very religious, but they called me it just because they liked the name. Also did get the comments at school like "I Hope you are hopeful" or if I was ever off I'd get "Aww, Hope's not in! Oh, we're Hopeless" but it never really bothers me as I like my name. Overall, I think my name is a great name and when I am older I want an Isla- Honour and a Harmony- Monroe sticking to the theme of virtue names :)

And Sassy's owner in the Disney movie Homeward Bound: the Incredible Journey, is named Hope Burnford.
When I first heard this name, I thought that maybe it would sound more like a name when I met someone named Hope. I was wrong. There is a Hope in my math class, and it's not growing on me. It's one of those names that needs the perfect person to have it. It almost feels like her parents are saying, "She's our Hope, she should be your Hope, and she's absolutely PERFECT." Now, I know that's not what they were thinking when they chose the name, but that's what I think of when I hear virtue names. Don't take offense if Hope is your name, this is just my opinion. As you can see, the overwhelming majority of people here love the name.
I'm a Hope. Middle name Alexis, which seems to be a fairly common combination. My nickname in my younger years was Hopey, which you'll hear my mom say every now and then. None of my siblings have a name like mine. I didn't like my name growing up, but I love it now. Everyone always tells me how beautiful it is. The only complaint is everyone thinks they're clever when I tell them my name. I'm pretty sure I've heard it all.
The nickname Hopie/Hopey is unbearable. It sounds too much like Dopey and Hokey. Hope would be a nice name but the nickname Hopie/Hopey makes it completely unusable as a given name. And it's religious associations don't help. Grace is a nice name though. And maybe Faith.

A very pretty virtue/word name that's a lot less common than you'd think. The only specific associations I think of for it are the little girl in Homeward Bound, and of course Bob Hope's surname. Well, and the Hope diamond.
Hope was the daughter of Sophia the Martyr. Hope and her two sisters (Faith and Charity) were martyred saints.
Hope is a beautiful name. Who cares if it's a word? It's meaning is wonderful. Hope is a very dear and special name to me. :')

I think this is a sweet name. People ALWAYS hate names if they are "word" names, even though almost every name on the planet was based off of one. If this is your name don't let the stupid comments get you down. :)
I think this is a very nice name! Its simple and sweet.
Okay name. Don't call her Hopey or Hopie.
1. It sounds like Nope-y
2. It sounds like Hokey.
Hope is a WORD. I love Faith, but Hope doesn't stick to me. Hope sounds more like a name for a seal. (Sorry Hopes out there, but that's just my point of view. Sorry.)
My name is Hope. I have two sisters named Faith and Charity and my brother's name is Marlon. I used to hate my name growing up because I was teased allllllll the time. Now, I love my name. It never fails that when a person finds out my name I get the famous "Keep Hope Alive". My sisters named my nieces Cherish, Joy and Honor.
My name is Hope and people always tell me is beautiful. I have two sisters named Faith and Charity and a brother named Hunter. With my surname Devine, I think it sounds very pretty, but beware!

Aw. Hope is a beautiful name. If I ever have a daughter I might call her Hope Rose. And actually, I could imagine it on on an 8Oyearold woman.
Just to let you know, this name is also masculine too.
Actually, I take what I said about Hope on Esperanza back. Though it doesn't have the majesty of Esperanza, Hope is a very pretty name and a beautiful concept. I'll always remember the Pandora's box story, where, at the very bottom of the box, lay hope. It seem the Greeks considered hope to be as dangerous as all the world's evils. But without hope to accompany all their troubles, humanity was filled with despair. So, to all the Hopes out there, wear it proud.

Oh, and the Russian and Basque forms Nadezhda and Itxaro are beautiful names too.
Hope is just beautiful. Enough said, I love it.
Hope is a beautiful concept and indeed an underrated one, and it sounds lovely as a name.
This is my favorite of the Puritan virtue names. It sounds like the name of a sweet, sincere girl or woman.
Yes, a verry pretty name of course. However, I see it as an extremely weak and delicate name. Not the name I would choose for the strong young women I "hope" my baby daughter will be.
The three sextuplet girls fron Jon and Kate Plus 8 have the middle names Hope, Faith and Joy. I think that is very cute and true, you need hope and faith to raise sextuplets and it will be a joy! :)
In theory I don't really care for virtue names but this one is gorgeous to me and I can even imagine using it in real life.
I used to dislike the name, as it's quite plain and not particularly pretty, but I've warmed up to it. It's totally overused as a middle name, though, and always associated with Chrstianity because of the ''faith, hope, love'' mantra, which are my reasons for not wanting to use it. However, hope as a concept is underrated. It's not a religious or spiritual thing; it's an absolute universal necessity for mental well-being. Everything will seem pointless without it.

Right on. I feel the same way. My first name is Hope and I cringe when someone asks me if my name is a Christian name. They cringe when I tell them that I worship the earth, trees, universe. My parents were hippies and they just "dug" the name, man. Hope is a feeling an optimist gets when they aren't in control of a situation. Anyway, I know you don't read comments from people on here but I'm commenting anyway. I'm a rebel like that.

Hope is my maiden name, and now my daughter's middle name. My great grandmother always referred to her as "my little Hope." To this day I am still called Hope instead of my given name by several of my friends, and I love it. The world can always use a little Hope! But as much as I love the name, and love being called Hope, I do prefer it as a middle or nickname.
This name is adorable! This would be a great name for a child born in a hurricane. Anyways, Hope and Faithe would be great names as a twin set!
