Love is all around us…just not as a first name. Love (the name, not the verb) is used much more commonly as a middle name (à la Jennifer Love Hewitt), but has yet to catch on as a bonafide first name. Perhaps parents worry that a grown-up woman named Love may not be taken seriously, or dismiss it as too hippie-ish. Names that also mean love but aren’t quiet so head-turning include Amanda, Carys, Cheryl and Charity.
- english: Love, affection
