The Best Baby Names That Mean Faith

Baby names that mean Faith can be a lovely choice for both religious families and those who simply like the inspirational meaning of the term. In addition to the obvious choice - Faith, on its own - there are plenty of attractive names with meanings that speak to a sense of conviction. 

Many names meaning Faith have a charming vintage appeal. Cute classic girl names that carry the meaning include Vera, Elizabeth, and Iris. Some old-fashioned boy names - like Caleb and Dillon - also roughly translate to Faith. If you're a dog lover, Caleb actually means "one faithful as a dog." 

In the age of unique names and nickname names, however, there's no need to think inside the box. Female names like Minnie and Mimi have the no-frills feel that's popular today. Some good unconventional boys names that mean Faith include Lafayette or Grifin. There are also some underused unisex options, like Truman or Amana.
