Less common than other virtue names, Liberty is nonetheless a name with a long American heritage.

I love it! It's a quite modern word name, yet it has this unique, vintage-like vibe to it!

cherrydubois Says:


I grew up with quite a posh, middle-class English girl called Liberty at school. Everyone called her 'Libby', and I didn't realise how unusual the name was until I was much older. I personally think this name is very pretty and usable.

I like this name!

Guest Says:


Rebel Wilson has siblings named Riot, Anarchy, and Liberty and everyone was just as shocked as her name Rebel but I think Liberty is the most tame. I first heard Liberty on Degrassi and I thought "that's super weird" but I think it's so pretty now and you can call her Libby.

As for Anarchy Wilson she goes by Ann I hear and as for Riot I secretly love it but would be too timid to use!

Saoirse is the Irish word for liberty but Americans don't know how to pronounce it but I would put it in the middle.

The more I think of it..the prettier it sounds! Liberty Grace would just be too cute.
