I love this name! Virtue names are wonderful. They’re definitely not out of style. Hope and Faith are still in, why not Chastity? It means “pure and innocent”, and if a person lives up to that name, they’ll be a breath of fresh air in the world.

I love this name so much, and the meaning, but sadly, do feel that bullying could be a serious issue, which is a sad reflection of modern society. The other issue I have with many virtue names, including this one, is that they set up expectations for anyone bearing the name. None of us are perfect, and it may not be ideal to set such high standards for a child and woman, by calling her Chastity. Other names do have a similar meaning, such as Agnes, so maybe that is worth looking into.

I actually really like this. Maybe it would be better as a middle name, though.

I think this is a lovely name, and it really annoys me that people are so down on it because of its meaning. Chastity is the name of a virtue, not a disease . . .
