Pronounced vel-yah.

If the meaning is "concealed", then logically it's related to the English word "veil", and could refer to the Christian concept of a "heavenly veil" separating us from the life before this one; that is, when we are born, we pass through the veil and lose all memory of our previous existence.

I think it's a lovely, complex name for a wonderful girl.

Velia is the modern name of the ancient Italian town of Elea, which is well known for being the home of the philosopher Parmenides and his student Zeno of Elea, who was famous for his paradoxes.

Velia is also considered a shortened form of the name Juvelia, related to Latin juven(is) or iuvenis, meaning "young" or "youthful".

Never call your child this and take them to Samoa. They have a similar word Valaea that means idiot or arsehole. An insult. So if you tell them your name is Velia they will most probably laugh.
