WDYT of the name Vera?

I generally love feminine, vintage style names for girls - Alice, Audrey, Celeste, Clara, Eleanor, Florence, Harriet, Matilda, Phoebe, Rose, Sophia, Violet, Vivienne etc

 

Vera Rose?

Vera Clare?

 Vera Sophie?

 

Thoughts?

Vera Celeste or Vera Josephine, an alternative not on your list is Vera Elizabeth, I think the long middle name balances the short first name and makes the name really elegant.

I like it, but I'm slightly bias as my grandmother was Vera May.

Going back another couple of generations and we had a Varah. I think the middle name was Louise.

I initially thought it sounded a little bit harsh but the more I think about it the more it’s growing on me. I do like the name Iris for some reason.

I quite like it. Be prepared for the "Aloe, Vera!" jokes however....

I love Vera.  My Great-Aunt Vera was lovely as, a friend's mum is a doll and the little tiny Vera a few years ago was gorgeous too.  Can't go wrong.

I like it with short and simple names but not bad with longer - I think that two syllables then two syllables doesn't flow as well - but that is me.

I like Vera, lovely. Vera Florence and Vera Alice are good combinations to my ear.

Vera May was the first thing that popped into my mind. Stunning.

I love the name Vera! Actually think it's very underused. Vera Sophie is beautiful.

I prefer Verity, Vera just doesn't sit right with me.  There's a British TV show called Vera on at the moment.

Vera sounds better with a longer middle name.  Agree with Sancti-Claws that two syllables and two syllables doesn't flow as well as two and more.

My mother was Vera. She absolutely hated her name.  She made me promise before she died that I wouldn't give any child of mine Vera as a first name.  So I named my first child Nicole Vera. As far as a name goes, I like it, but it has a emotional meaning for me too. Nicole likes it too.  She has decided that if she has a daughter one day, she'll name her Vera.
