"Faith's mom...Her name was chosen before her birth. It was a terrible icy frozen night and we were far from the nearest hospital. I called the sheriff's office to check road conditions. they said that the ambulance service had a unit nearby and would send them over. My contractions were so close together that it was deemed that I be transported by ambulance. She was to be my 5th child. The contractions were strong and close. I was told not to push. I couldn't help it I bellowed that the child be born. the attendant instructed the driver to pull over. In moments she was born in front of Faith Baptist church...confirmation or what? The local police radioed the ambulance, Everything O.K.? they responded just had a baby. Congratulations was the reply. we were not insured, the hospital and ambulance cost combined were 1/10th of a hospital delivery. Local TV news covered her birth.

if you think this name will suit your child then go for it." Dec. 27, 2007:
"my lil sis is called faith so i think it is a good name to name ur child" Dec. 16, 2007:
"I am a 'Faith.' As a child, I was the only Faith I knew. Never even met one until I was 16, in the late '70's. When I was in 2nd grade, and we used to say the Pledge of Allegiance, there is a line that says "I love thy name (America)". I used to say under my breath: "I hate my name." That is, until the teacher caught me, and talked to me after class. She helped me recognize that my name was unique, and that I should appreciate how special I must be to have my name.
As an adult, I have met only a handful of other Faith's. Whenever I hear of or meet one, I am instantly, inexplicably jealous. Meeting a Hope or Charity inspires a completely different, and positive esponse.
One of my pet peeves is when people don't want to get my name right, and call me "Faye." Like Faye Wray in the original King Kong movie. Not only did I consider her a dumb and helpless blonde even as a child, I simoly hate the name. And if someone insists on irritating me by calling me Faye, I politely give them the "like faith, hope and charity' line from the Bible, or now, I say "like Faith Hill." If they still don't want to say my name correctly (yes, I have had challenges on this by men), I tell them that if they don't want to call me by my correct name, that they can use my surname, Ms. _____, or I simply 'slip' and call them by a completely unrelated name (!).
One downer on having this name is the lack of nicknames. Except for variants on my name, like Fait-ie, I was usually insulted by poor nicknames. At least I never have to worry about having a girlish name that ends in a 'Y' or 'IE.'" Oct. 8, 2007:
"My name is faith, and I am 15 years old, haha like already said, people aske me all the time "how is that spelled?"...Um duh. hahah. its unique and leaves an impression. I love it." Aug. 27, 2007:

"We named our daughter Faith while i was only 2 months pregnant with her. 10 years before my mum was diagnose with Leukeamia, she told me while she was lying in a hospital bed that she dreamt I had a baby girl.I held onto that dream ever since and refuse to accept friends & family telling me otherwise." Feb. 20, 2007:
"We just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and we named her Faith, we had many many problems concieving and were told we couldnt have children, imagine our suprise at 25 weeks when we discovered we were pregnant.
