More info about the name "Charity"

Charity originates in Latin language and is taken from the word for benevolent caring and giving. Charity is one of the three theological virtues (together with Hope and Faith) and that is probably the reason why the name was more popular in Christian families. There was also a saint of the name, a Christian child martyr. In the United States, Faith and Hope have always been more popular than Charity.
