More 1980's and 1990's.
Joy seems fresher.

I love this name so much. It does make a lovely middle name, but I feel that it could become neglected as a first name. I always enjoy hearing this one.

My favorite virtue name!!! Underused, beautiful country girl vibe!!! A huge part of my faith in God is hoping in him;) been married 23 months now and still waiting for my Hope. If there's one thing I've never lost in God it's Hope. That's exactly why am using this name .

That is interesting, I never would have thought. I wonder if it was a family name as well?

Sure you could! :-) Fathers give their names to sons all the time, surely a mother can give hers to a daughter. A little Hope junior would be a lovely tribute to you.

I love this name because it is my own. Truth be told if it weren't my name I'd name my future daughter Hope.

I like so many other virtue names like Faith, Grace, Joy, and Ruth, but just can't like this for some reason.

I was perusing through some British birth announcements and saw this as a middle name for newborn boy. I actually thought that was quite interesting.
