Gender: Female Origin of Honesty: Word name

Honesty Origin and Meaning

The name Honesty is a girl's name .

Honesty is one of the modern virtue names, which along with Justice and Destiny are picking up where Faith, Hope, and Charity left off. Is Honesty the most appealing name ever? No, and it's also sure to spark lots of tiresome jokes. Still, Honesty is a positive quality and a lot more appealing than negative word names such as Pistol and Rehab (which both, yes, were given to five baby girls in the US last year).

Honesty is now ranking right below the Top 1000, with 233 baby girls given the name in the US in 2015. We predict that it will climb along with its meritorious sisters and brothers.

I agree. I think Honesty could definitely work as a name! The descriptions of some other names, eg. Viviette and Nuria, are also a bit biased.

I think this name is very pretty. I really like it. I wish Nameberry wouldn't be so harsh on the names that they don't like. Just because they don't prefer it, doesn't mean no one else will!
