A name almost the same as "Venetia" is the Bulgarian feminine name "Veneta", which is connected with the Bulgarian word "venetz", which means "wreath".

This doesn't really sound right as a name. It sounds weird in Europe, and in American usage, this would sound like a ghetto name with the ''eesha'' pronunciation that the name has in English.

I adore this name. It's the most beautiful name I've come across so far. It sounds very aesthetic and steampunk-ish. Reminds me of someone who is red-haired, fiery and passionate.

Some authorities (including the Oxford Dictionary of Christian Names) have explained this as a Latinization of Gwenyth/Gwyneth. Compare to the Latinization of Gwynedd (Venedotia). [noted -ed]

This name sounds rather trashy, but at the same time stuffy. I don't like this trend of using Italian place names as given names because no one in Italy is named Venetia, Roma, or Firenze.

I think this name is quite alright, really, but it will always make me think of Venetian blinds. :\
