Ventura Origin and Meaning

The name Ventura is both a boy's name and a girl's name of Spanish origin meaning "good fortune".
Ventura started life as a shortening of Bonaventura, Spanish for good luck or good fortune, but now stands on its own. It has a pleasant sound and the stylish 'V' ending, but Angelenos would associate it with the Valley's main stem--Ventura Boulevard, and others might think of Ace or Jesse Ventura.
