Virtue names were particularly popular among the Puritans and other early American religious groups. This is by no means a complete list.
These are one of my favorite types of names. My father's family tree has several ladies given virtue names, including: Clement, Comfort, Christiana, Deliverance, Grace, Hail, Hope, Mercy, Patience, Prudence, Prosper, Stillman, Thankful, Thankfull, Welcome, Wait, Waity.
