    Names that mean Mercy or Truth (besides Verity or Mercy:)

    I am looking for names with the meaning or feel of Mercy or Truth. Verity and Mercy are lovely, but seem like a lot to live up to when it is directly in the name!
    No Reserves. No Retreats. No Regrets.

    I love Mercy and Verity, they're both lovely. I love the option of Clemence or Clementine as well. I also think True and Truth both make beautiful options.
    Verina/Verena, Verdad, Vera, Verona, Veronica, and Veronique are great options.
    Alethea or Elethea are beautiful as well.
    Mercedes, Grace, Honor, and Hannah could all be options as well.

    I expanded my search to include some similar qualities like grace, charity, and gentleness, since I didn't come up with much for either truth or mercy! There still isn't a ton here, but hopefully this helps. (Also, for what it's worth, I like Verity a lot as a name in its own right.)

    Alethea/Aletha/Aleta/Letha - derived from a Greek word meaning "truth"
    Elvira - "all true"
    Sanna - Swedish short form of Susanna, but can also be derived from Swedish word for "true"
    Clementine & variants - merciful
    Mercedes - mercies
    Eir/Eira - means "mercy" in Old Norse
    Eskarne - means "mercy" in Basque
    Amara - grace
    Charis - grace/kindness
    Aglaea/Aglaia, Euphrosyne, & Thalia - The Three Graces/Charities
    Sanaz - may mean "full of grace" in Persian
    Ruth - just one letter off from "truth," and thesaurus.com has it listed as a synonym for "mercy"
    Caoimhe/Keeva - beautiful/gentle/kind
    Vieno - means "gentle" in Finnish
