My baby girl's first name is Venice, and her middle name is Victoria, people love it everytime I tell the name of my baby, they always say it is so unique.

If you're not a huge fan of Venice but want something similar, you could use Venezia, the Italian word for Venice! The "z" is pronounced like in "pizza".

Some may say it's odd, but I think it's beautiful, and a nice modern twist on Vanessa.

Cleora12345 Says:


I like Venice. It has a beautiful sound to it and I love the V name. Venice is an unusual name still, but it still works. I see a bubbly girl with a big heart wearing this name.

RoddyThlayli Says:


I think this could make a handsome boy's name, too.

Jess Says:


Its already hit the birth certificate of a baby in America. My 2 year old daughter is named Venice. It's beautiful and unique! Every time I tell someone what her name is the response is positive. Everyone loves it!

DearestJules Says:


Yeah, I think Venice is pretty too. The city in Italy (which I think is a positive association) is probably what will come to most people's minds first anyway, not the hooker from The Wolf of Wall Street or the Venice in California.

Guest Says:


Lol yeah there was a hooker in The Wolf of Wall Street named Venice 😂😂 I think the name is kinda pretty though. It seems like a lot of place names are used for strippers these days, Blac China for instance.

DearestJules Says:


To me Venice sounds a little inappropriate, like a stripper name or something. Apparently there was a hooker character in The Wolf of Wall Street named Venice, and also the association with Venice Beach in California isn't very high-class either.

DearestJules Says:


Slightly less daunting than Venus.
