Gender: Female Origin of Clarity: Virtue name

Clarity Origin and Meaning

The name Clarity is a girl's name .

Clarity is one of the lightest of the newly rediscovered virtue names, with a bit of three-syllable sparkle, old-fashioned charm and a clear vision for the future. Clarity is a very desirable quality in this confusing world and it also, unlike some other newly coined word names, has real meaning and history as a name.

Clarity is preferable to Charity and definitely to Chastity, with the possibility of Clare as a short form.

You could nickname as Clary.

paulapuddephatt Says:


Sweet name, nice alternative to Charity, and sounds somewhat similar to Clare, Claire, Clara, Clarice, etc

Shaybaby1 Says:


This is beautiful! It sounds so feminine and fresh. Surprisingly, as I strongly dislike the name Claire...which would likely become the nn here, so I could never use it myself.

sometimeschessie Says:


I have loved the idea of Clarity as a virtue name ever since I was a teenager, and I never realized it was a "real" name before. I think it is very wearable on its own, or the child could go by Claire or Clary (or by initials with the right middle name, like CJ or CZ). The meaning is top-notch.

autumnreverie Says:


I much prefer this to Chastity. It has a refreshing sound, much more so than Charity.

iipostmvh Says:


All I can see is clarity, as in I had a moment of clarity. I just don't see the appeal in that. Calling Clarity a virtue name, something you desire to be, is a stretch.

Yara Says:


I like this. It's different, but if the kid doesn't like it, she can just use Clair for short.

Guest Says:


I want to like this but I think it's weird as a name. Charity is better.

faithnamer Says:


I like this with the nn Clary.
