Gender: F Meaning of Vesper: "evening star" Origin of Vesper: Latin

This Latin word used for evening spiritual services was introduced to baby namers by the Eva Greene character Vesper Lynd in the modern James Bond film Casino Royale in 2006, based on the Ian Fleming novel, and is just now beginning to provoke interest among namers, with its spiritual reference and soft, whispery sound.

On a more earthly note, the 'Vesper Martini' is the famous drink ordered by James Bond in both the book and the movie Casino Royale.

A name likely to enter the Top 1000.
