Absolutely gorgeous. Perpetua is a beautiful name. It's so lovely, elegant and very unique. This meaning is so gorgeous. I like association of St. Perpetua and Felicity. I love it. ❤❤.
Perpetua Kirk is a character from Christianna Brand's mystery novel "Death of Jezebel". She is one of the six suspects in a murder taking place at a medieval-themed fair, the supposed motivation of which was a suicide she indirectly caused years before, and for which her life has now been threatened.
Perpetua Fancourt is a character in the Harry Potter series, who was mentioned in the video games. She was a witch who is credited with the invention of the lunascope, an astronomical device used to analyse the phases of the moon.
Wow. This name gets a lot of hate. No one forgot the L in Perpetual because this name isn't supposed to be Perpetual. This name is B E A U T I F U L! I absolutely love it!

I quite like this name. It’s too bad it’s not popular or normalized to some extent. I would love to name a child this, but it seems like I’ll have to settle for it being the middle name. Too bad it gets so much hate.

Looks like someone forgot to add the L when spelling perpetual.
Also used in Portuguese. It's definitely more common for the older generations, but I've known a few Perpetuas (my dad has a cousin whose wife has this name). We spell it Perpétua. I actually like it, but it probably won't work unless you're really religious. [noted -ed]
This is a unique name probably for unique people. I like how it sounds so powerful. But because of the history of the martyr St Perpetua and her great sacrifice, naming a baby Perpetua is almost like naming a baby Jesus. But I am stunned. Very beautiful and respected name. I like how it is not an over-used name like Sarah and Jane and maybe... Penelope the duck.
This name is very bad. When someone gets a life sentance in Spanish it's called "cadena Perpetua". I would never name my child after a prison sentance.
Saint Perpetua of Carthage is a third century Christian martyr.
This is a quote from the user Murasaki on the Name Facts board on the usage of the name Perpetua in Italy. "[Perpetua] has a history of usage in Italy, and has been used in Alessandro Manzoni's 19th c. classic novel "The Betrothed" where it's the name of the character of a priest's governess. As a result, "Perpetua" has become a common word to designate a priest's governess, and has consequently fallen out of use as a person's name."
Actually I think the pronunciation for this name in English is "per-PECH-yoo-ə".

It's a very rare name though.
I'll admit I don't care for the Spanish pronunciation of this name, but that's probably because I'm English. Pronounced "per-PET-shoo-a", like the English word "perpetual", I think this name is absolutely beautiful. I absolutely love it, and the meaning is gorgeous too!
I don't like this name. Who wants to have a name that sounds like "perpetual"?
This name sounds very religious to me, like someone's conformation name. I can't picture anyone actually being named "Perpetua", it quite obviously means perpetual.
