Vera vs. Too dated?

I’m trying to find a name for my daughter, and I keep coming back to the thought that I would like to honor my great-aunt Vera with the name in some way if possible. We share a birthday and have always been fairly close. But is the name Vera itself too dated? What first/middle names sound good with Vera? Or any name suggestions that might somehow still pay tribute to Vera? Please help!
Which baby name is best?
 Vera
 Too Dated?

Emma in Western Australia
We have a boy named Tyler James and a girl named Gypsie Jade. Expecting our 3rd, which is a boy. I'm in love with the name Olly, but my partner thinks Gypsie and Olly are unique names and Tyler is not, so it won't feel right. So he wants an ordinary name. Please help with something unique but ordinary.
Baby Name Genie:
In the space between unique and ordinary is a special category of names I think of as "antiques." They are familiar and well-used names that are not widely in use these days. For your son, I give you Oscar Jude - a perfectly ordinary, unique name.
