Synonyms: faithful, loyal, true, constant, steadfast, staunch1
These adjectives mean adhering firmly and devotedly to someone or something that elicits or demands one's fidelity. Faithful and loyal both suggest undeviating attachment, though loyal applies more often to political allegiance: a faithful employee; a loyal citizen. True implies steadiness, sincerity, and reliability: remained true to her innermost beliefs. Constant stresses uniformity and invariability: "But I am constant as the northern star" (Shakespeare).
Steadfast implies fixed, unswerving loyalty: a steadfast ally. Staunch even more strongly suggests unshakable attachment or allegiance: a staunch supporter of the cause.
