6 Comments

  1. It means truth and faithfulness and I love that! Beautiful and unique

  2. Vera feels slightly exotic but it has been anglicized for over a century, so it has the side benefit of also feeling timeless.

    Most names have some sort of origin meaning, but Vera has an unmistakable and familiar root in veritas (truth).

  3. Vera is such a beautiful old fashioned name it was my great grandmas name I absolutely love it ?

  4. I have a baby girl named Vera and I love her name. It’s recognizable without being too common. It’s cute and feminine, without being frilly. I will say, more people pronounce her name as vair-ah than I expected, which is kind of frustrating. We live in Michigan, so maybe it’s just a location thing.

  5. Classy, with a little mystery

  6. Her name is the female character from the novel War and Peace. It was very popular in Europe when the book was first published. My husband is the one who actually chose it because we’d also gave our son(who went to heaven three days after birth) a middle name after a character in a novel.
