Patience is a very lovely name. Patience is such a virtue. People might say this name is too much to live up to and 'what if she's impatient?', but really, people aren't born patient or impatient. Patience is a choice. we choose to be patient or not. Nobody's perfect, but it's nice to give children names with nice meanings.
