In my opinion, virtue names for girls are way easier to come up with than for boys. I really like the ones you've chosen so far! For girls:

Constance

Felicity

Honor

Hope

Patience

Verity

Other than those already suggested:

Amity

Clarity

Honora

Joy

Mercy

BTW, I really like Prudence and the meaning is fab.

Thanks to both of you!

Prudence and Temperance are both recent TV-show names--do you think that makes them risky choices?

Do most people pronounce Honora "ah-NOR-a"?

I think either would be fine to use.

I love Felicity- because that's my daughter's name :)

I also like Patience and Constance from your list!

My favorite happens to be Felicity. But I also think Verity is really pretty and has a great feel/flair to it.

Patience is actually my favorite...maybe because I lack it.
