I think Vera is a very beautiful name, but I can't shake the image of Jim Carrey in a bikini as "Vera" the Eastern European female body-builder on "In Living Color" in the early 90's. Nevertheless, I still think it's lovely and I don't think most people would make that connection.

I have two impressions of the name "Vera." First, it reminds me of a musty old woman. Second, it makes me think of a female body-builder (Jim Carey, "In Living Color").
I would avoid this name.
