There ist a famous poem of the Russian Mikhail Lermontoff which is named "Vesna". And it was a very popular name in all Yugoslavian republics during the 70s and 80s ... ;)

Russian pop singer Alsou sings a song called Vesna (meaning 'spring' in Russian). It is a pretty song and I think this is a pretty name too.

The name "Vesna" in Serbia is also connected to the Resurrection of Christ. It would be similar to the Greek name "Evangalia". The one who brings the Good News with a smile. Spring time is associated with the Resurrection.

Although "Vesna" means "spring" it derives from the word "vest" which means "news" therefore "message" and it has received an extended meaning of "spring" because spring was believed to be the start of the new year hence spring was the messenger telling us the new year is starting. Hence "Vesna" means "messenger" (female version of the noun) and "spring".

Even though Vesna has been on my list for a while now, I've only recently started considering it for a future daughter of mine. It's so unique and pretty.

Vesna does not mean "messenger" nor does it stem from the word "vest" (which translates as news or message). Vesna was the name of a pre-Christian Slavic Goddess of Spring and Fertility. The word "Vesna" originates from Sanskrit and is related to the word "Vishnu" (the name of one of the three major Gods in Hinduism).
