I don't just mean a Verity who's a bit of a fibber, or a stingy Charity but what wouldn't work at all?

I'll start with:

Fecundity
Concord (people would think of aeroplanes)

Caution
Discipline

Apparently Silence was a popular name in Puritan times. For girls, of course.

Patience ( mice met one and she was lovely but a hard name to carry I think)

MrsGsnow18 Sun 28-Aug-16 17:51:13

Oh dear I'll have to translate
Mice met one= met a nice one

Accountability

I think Innocent could be ok (but you could practically guarantee thread grown up to have a really dirty sense of humour!).

Discipline would be an awful name.

Probity & Rectitude. These are my imaginary twins' names. What could go wrong?

StepAwayFromTheThesaurus Sun 28-Aug-16 19:13:48

Fear and Hate-Evil are some truly wonderful Puritan names. Lovely for twins.

StepAwayFromTheThesaurus Sun 28-Aug-16 19:17:35

There are some awesome Puritan names on this list.

I can't think why humiliation fell out of fashion as a name. It must be due a comeback.

Continence smile

That is an actual name. Another Puritan one.

StepAwayFromTheThesaurus Sun 28-Aug-16 19:48:59

I'd rather be continence walker than incontinence walker.

That's not saying much though.
