Introducing the First Nameberry Baby!

unused cute-baby-smiling

The first message board ever in nameberry’s illustrious three-week-long history asked: To V or Not To V?  A mom was trying to decide whether to name her about-to-be-born daughter Vera.

What did everyone think?, she asked.  Was Vera fresh and appealing?  Or did it still sound too old-ladyish?  Did people have other V names they might suggest?

The nameberry community pitched in, and we are proud to introduce the first-ever baby named with the help of nameberry: Vera Adelaide Kingston.

Vera Adelaide was born to Melody and Richard on October 27. Her mom, Melody, found out about the name on this website and fell in love with the meaning and sound. She’ll be called Vera. Her siblings are Elizabeth Rae and Elliot Gray. They got their names from Beyond Jennifer & Jason, Madison and Montana. They are called Lizzie and Elliot.

Vera was in the Top 100 from 1890 to 1930 when it started a long downward slide, now not in the Top 1000.  But it’s recently started to be reappreciated by a new generation of parents taking a second look at such antique names as Ada, Iris, and Josephine.  With the wonderful meaning “truth,” Vera also connects with a range of V names newly in fashion, from those with V beginnings such as Vivienne, Violet, and Victor to such favorites as Ava, Olivia, and Evan.

Welcome, Vera, and all our warmest wishes for a long and wonderful life with your beautiful name.
