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!

I think Vera is dated but it’s still useable and nice.
I’d personally go with a classic middle name.
Vera Adelaide
Vera Christine
Vera Elizabeth
Vera Allison
Vera Madeleine
Vera Genevieve
Vera Natalie
Vera Rachel
Vera Catherine

If you chose to use as a middle name, I guess it would depend on what type of names you like.
Allison Vera
Catherine Vera
Rachel Vera
Brynlee Vera
Cassidy Vera
Paisley Vera

Vera is actually beginning to come back. But it’s not overly popular yet. I think it would be a great choice. And I love the family connection.

Vera is PERFECT! Classic, old, but definitely ready for a comeback.

I don’t think it’s quite that outdated. The only other name I can think of to honour Vera is Veronica and to me that’s dated. I actually know a 2 year-old Vera and it suits her well. Vera Katherine or Vera Joanne go well and just about any name goes well if you use Vera as a middle name.

Vera is gorgeous and underused. I don’t think it’s too dated at all. Verity is another beautiful name which could be used to honour a Vera.
