The name Veda is a girl's name of Sanskrit origin meaning "knowledge". Veda is ranked #864 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Mystical Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "drop two add one: Girls!".
From the experts:
A name with religious resonance, as the Vedas are the most sacred texts of Hinduism. Outside of that religious context, Veda has the makings of a modern popular name, with its sharp V initial, two syllables, and feminine a ending. This is evidenced by it reentry into the US Top 1000 in 2015, after fifty-five years off the list. Similar names on the rise are Vera and Vada.
