The name Verity is a girl's name of Latin origin meaning "truth". Verity and is often added to lists like Unique Vintage Baby Names for Girls and discussed in our forums with posts like "Pick 5 (GIRLS)".
From the experts:
If you love Puritan virtue names and want to move beyond Hope and Faith and Grace, this is a wonderful choice, both for its meaning and its sound. A rare find here, though occasionally heard in England. It was used in Winston Graham's Poldark novels, was Madonna's name as James Bond's fencing instructor in Die Another Day, and made a brief appearance in Harry Potter. Not to mention being a fixture on British and Australian soaps. Verity also appears in one of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple mysteries.
We love the newer sounding three-syllable, 'y'-ending virtue names, and Verity is one of the best.
