  1. I chose the name Charity Rose cause my husband and I tried for years to have a baby with no success. I started praying to God please Bless me with a child, I found out I was pregnant in January of 2019 and God spoke to me and gave me the name Charity Rose.

  2. None

  3. It was on both mine and my husband’s lists. We love it because it can be tied back to 1 Corinthians 13 (KJV)
