My Girl was the first movie I ever saw and the name Vada stuck with me. I'm surprised it's not more popular given the rise of similar-sounding names like Ava and Ada.

I went to school with a girl named Vada growing up and I always thought it was a very pretty name

mill1020 Says:


I'm kind of into this name at the moment. Not sure whether this spelling would be better than Veda, though.

Sarah Says:


my daughter was born July 2015 and we named her Vada. I don't even hate the Darth Vada...but I will say she cannot date a Luke. :)

This name is lovely and sweet. However I'd spell it Vaeda to minimize the Darth Vada association.

I had my daughter on June 16 2014, her name is Vada Anne, also because I loved the movie my girl. I think it might start getting a little more popular. And I've found that too that people recognize it from the movie

Kiki Whitfield Says:


Vada has always been a favorite of mine, thanks to Vada Sultenfuss!

Jer Says:


My daughter was born 12/31/2014. I named her Vada Lin. Everyone has had lovely comments about her name and loves it. I'm actually surprised at the amount of people who immediately recall the name from the movie My Girl considering it was released 23 years ago. It was one my favorite movies growing up and I've always loved the name!

I know what you mean! This name is gorgeous, I love Vada and I absolutely love the movie My Girl I have seen it almost a million times! I always cry at the end though. I don't know why so many people don't take any notice of the name Vada. I first saw the movie My Girl when I was about 7, 8 or 9 and I have loved it ever since. Vada is actually on my name list for girls. I have loved this name ever since I noticed it on My Girl too.

Vay da

Guest Says:


I've only heard this on Kid Cudi's daughter. I don't know the right way to pronounce it. Is it vah-da or vay-da?

PoppyOrangey Says:


I can't believe Nameberry doesn't have anything to say about Vada and I'm the first to comment?! I can imagine a sweet yet spunky little girl with this name. Maybe I'm just imagining Vada from the movie My Girl. When I first saw the movie I fell in love with this name. It's pronounced "vay da". It fits the V name craze without being over used.
