Baby names that are nouns or adjectives?

What are some names that are also pretty nouns or adjectives?

For example, my daughter's middle name is Joy & I have a friend who's first name is Noel.

I'm trying to help gather a list for a friend who is trying to decide on baby names. She is having twins-a boy and a girl & she is looking to have their middle names be a noun or adjective that means something nice

So far from your suggestions-please keep them coming!!

BOY:
Hunter
Sonny
Rock
Archer
River

GIRL:
Melody
Harmony
Prudence
Temperance
Mercy
Destiny
Windy
Rain
Sandy
Ray (Rae)
May (Mae)
Joy
Noel
Grace
Hope
Angel
Faith
Charity
Pearl
Summer
Autumn
April
Hazel
Violet
Olive
Laurel
Opal
Aurora
June
Daisy (my friend said no to flower names, but I had to sneak this one in because I think it's adorable!!)

Well, all the flower names (Lily, Rose, etc.) are nouns, but I don't think that's what you're looking for, right?

Thank you-I suggested those, but she is really looking for duel meaning type words like "Hope" as a name but it also has a lovely meaning

I think what you're looking for is known as a "virtue" name. I'm sure the baby name sites probably have a list. Ranging from popular ones (Hope, Grace, Joy) to the less-popular (Mercy, Prudence, Temperance, etc.)

Here are a couple of lists:
