Category: baby name Valentina
And beyond celebratingÂ Valentine’s Day baby names, letâ€™s get expansive and salute the whole wide-ranging rise of its initial letter, â€˜V.â€™
If consonants can be said to have personalities, then it wasnâ€™t so long ago that the letter V was seen as more venerableâ€”even fusty– than vivacious. Velma, Vera and Verna; Vernon, Victor and Vincent, all made our original â€˜So Far Out Theyâ€™ll Always Be Outâ€™ list.Â But as Pam and I have learned all too well since thenâ€”never say the words never or always.
The changes have been gradual since we wrote that, but there were two celebrity events that had a significant effect on V-baby names: Â the naming of Violet Affleck in 2005, and then of one of the Jolie-Pitt twins Vivienne three years later.Â Now there are a myriad of V-starting names popping both in and out of the celebrisphere.
