Purity as a girl’s name is from the Middle English word purite meaning “pure.” It’s an example of a virtue name, which is a name that represents a quality you might hope baby will embody. This naming practice goes back to Puritans of the 16th century who chose names like Faith or Charity, starting a tradition that still stands today. If you believe baby will be a shining example of innocence, sinlessness, and righteousness, Purity could be just the ticket.
