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?

Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
