I was under the impression this was an Italian name? The only evidence I have to support this is an Italian girl I met named Vera, and an Italian Opera with a character named Vera. Is there any other evidence that may suggest this?

I had a relative by this name. It is quite commonly used in Russia and other Eastern European countries and to me is one of the nicest feminine names anywhere.

bathos  10/2/2010
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.

Could be related to the Latin word for green.

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.
