The name Verity is a girl's name of Latin origin meaning "truth". Verity and is often added to lists like Colonial Names for Girls and discussed in our forums with posts like "Quick Question Thread?!".
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.
