    It actually sounds masculine to me as it reminds me of the retired football player Patrick Vieira who was always referred to by his surname, as footballers are. I don't think it's a bad name though, and I like it more than Vera, which is still very 'old woman' to me. Also, I've just finished rewatching series 1-3 of Downton Abbey and Vera was the name of a particularly awful character, which doesn't really help my opinion of it much.

    This, but you'd never get the pronunciation you're looking for.

    Vera can be pronounced like "Veera" or "Vaira"; I taught a girl with the latter pronunciation, and have heard the former in movies and TV. I don't think you need to spell it differently. As soon as she introduces herself, it will be clear to everyone which way she pronounced it.
