  • "Hello, I'm Indonesian, and a mother of two. I did not realize that there are many Veda's in the U.S, though still a rather unique name. When I was in university, I met one girl named Veda who was older than I am and I have liked that name ever since. She was the only Veda among many Indonesians. It's such a rare name here. we have Vidya or Widya but hardly Veda. So when I was about to give birth to my first born, I said if it's a girl, I want to name her Veda (pronounced Vayda). But I didn't know what it means, so my Balinese friend who is a Hindu looked it up and said that Veda comes from the root Sanscrit word 'Vied' which means 'knowledge'. It all fell into place in my heart, I started wishing her to become a wise person and now she is almost 14 years old, always enjoys reading and searching for answers (knowledge), her eyes perk up when she learns something new, level-headed and wiser than kids her age, cool and funny. She is my best friend, too. So, to me, it's a beautiful name and worth to keep." Oct. 17, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "Our Veda was born on Halloween, named after her paternal great-grandmother. Her namesake was a very strong woman who raised her 4 children alone after her husband left her with them and his own ailing father when he took the family car. She didn't miss a beat, taking care of all of them without complaint and with much compassion. Our Veda is named for these qualities as well as the meaning, "knowledge, wisdom." Some people say "veeda" but I don't care. Some people mispronounce my common name. You can't name your child to please other people. I like that it is unique. It gives automatic character and strength." Jan. 30, 2010: Report as inappropriate
