If your name was your virtue, what would you be called?

Asked by SuperMouse (30785points) May 30th, 2009

This question actually comes courtesy of my six year-old. We were listening to the Jason Mraz song that includes the line “our name is our virtue” which made him think of this question. If your name was your virtue, what would it be? Mine would probably be Hope, I guarantee it would not be patience!

My name, Katherine, means “pure”. And though that doesn’t apply to my body, I do my best to ensure that it applies to my heart and intentions. I try to live as honestly and transparently as possible, because it keeps my life simple and allows me to sleep with a clear conscience.

My name, “Michael”, means “He who is like God”. That’s about right I’d say! :)

@SuperMouse, tell your little man he came up with a great question!

I think my name would be Gratitude.

I think mine might be steadfast or loyal or something like that.

However, my son says it would be “fat slug.” And he is in a good mood today.

Virtus (latin for virtue), Moralitas (latin for moral, character, proper behavior), Vestal (chaste).

it means “goddess of the moon”
since there’s only one God

@DrasticDreamer: I think the questioner was asking what virtue would you want to be named after or would best represent you? I only used my real name because it does have a meaning that I have tried to incorporate into my life.

I don’t want to tell you what my name really means, because then you would know my name.

I’ll say my virtue would be freedom, in all of it’s forms, for good and for bad.

“Elizabeth” means “oath of God.” Now if only someone would tell me what that means…
