DD1 has a name heavily associated with Puritan times. Now expecting DC2 so am looking for suggestions of names that have a puritan vibe to them for both boys and girls.

I quite like Delilah, Constance, Tobias and Gideon maybe

I love Verity and Constance. Esther and Amity are also stylish.

Would you use Makepeace? Even as a middle name? Because that sounds so cool.

Hope is so lovely

Yes already have a Patience. Thinking it's probably best to avoid another obvious virtue name?

Callamia Sun 15-Oct-17 19:34:01

I don't think so, while Prudence might be a bit much, something like Hope or Verity doesn't sound like matchy-virtue-overboard.

I absolutely LOVE Patience. I love these names in general - Unity and Constance are favourites too. I'd be interested to hear boys names that come into this category.

I love Elijah! My DH wanted Ezekial but we went for something simpler. I'm glad as it suits him but I have since met a toddler Ezekial and it doesent seem otto at all.

Constance / Connie...just lovely.

I don't think Delilah is a very Puritan name.
