Gender: F Origin of Liberty: Word name Liberty's Popularity in 2015: #558

Less common than other virtue names, Liberty is nonetheless a name with a long American heritage.

Liberty is seeing a level of popularity not seen since the end of the First World War, but its heyday was probably the mid-19th Century when it became popular in the aftermath of the US Civil War, particularly among African-American freedmen.

Liberty was also popular following the American War of Independence and even among some Puritan colonies.

Some quirky parents may have considered using this name in the wake of the successful film JunoJuno’s younger sister is called Liberty-Bell.
