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

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.
