    Names meaning faith (trust/hope)

    A friend of mine is going through a tricky pregnancy; she was talking about looking for names that mean faith, as in certainty or trust, rather than religious believing.

    I was trying to think of other meanings or names that would symbolise that positive feeling that things will work out, I would love to hear any suggestions.

    To try to get more answers I will also post this on the boys names & babys names forums; apologies for repeats.
