With a name like Promise, baby won't be quick to forget that you're always in their corner. This gender-neutral name is found in English-speaking parts of Africa, and you can use it to remind little one of your commitment and constant love. An English word from the Latin promissum, Promise means “pledge” or “vow.” Use it as a more modern alternative for classic virtue names like Grace, Liberty, and Honor, to remind baby of how important their word is.
