- Personal experiences with the name Chasity
The name is a Scandinavian form of the Latin name Chastity. I was born near Harstad, Norway, and grew up in Oslo before moving to Virginia in 2010. I've never had any "Chastity" jokes before as others have mentioned to me. I love this name, and I wish people would quit saying it is Latin, it's not. It is from Scandinavia, it's NOrdic. It comes from North of the Arctic Circle, like me. My family has had this name as a first name for some of the baby girls for over 5 centuries.

- Meanings and history of the name Chasity
Contrary to popular belief, this name did not originate with Chastity Bono in the 70's. Rather, it is a Scandinavian derivative of the Latin word Chastity, meaning purity. This name has existed roughly since the 10th century in Scandinavia, mostly in the regions North of the Arctic Circle in what is today Northern Norway and Sweden.
The name may have been popularized outside Scandinavia by its use as an alternative spelling of Chastity after Chastity Bono, but this version has nothing to do with Bono or U.S. culture what soever.
It is a name meaning purity, a more simplified of the Latin version.
