Origin and Meaning

Vera
Meaning: faith
Origin: Russian
Vera is the Russian translation of the Old Greek name Pystida ("pystys" belief); the Latin word
"verus" is related to the Slavic "vera". The name means faith, belief, and truth.
The woman named Vera is usually reserved, concentrating on something deep down inside her, a
girl with a difficult and discrepant character. However, when dealing with the emotions, she may
be described as a steady and reliable person.
Vera is quite a reasonable, balanced, logical and practical woman. She is very smart and specific.
She knows perfectly what she really wants and wont loose her chance. Shes absolutely free of
dreams and illusions. Vera is a kind, gentle girl. She is incapable of any violent deeds. Shes calm
and cool. It is almost impossible to involve her with something to say nothing of any sort of a
long-term activity. Her character is based on the truth and essence our world is based on. Vera is
a real woman of integrity. This quality together with strong will and confidence creates the image
of a strong and in some way fatal woman. However, she is not the one living "at full load". It will
be easier to win her affection with some serious intentions rather then with passionate, risky
promises. Despite the success in business, Vera is still rather unsure of herself. Sometimes she
might be even suspicious and hypochondriac. Probably its the backside of the confidence seen
by everyone. Vera always takes hard the problems. However, she has no regrets even if its her
fault. She may be sometimes seriously depressed as if she misses someone dear for her. Vera
reveals her secrets to other people rather seldom.
Vera usually uses the double moral principles, but not in the common meaning. What she says
actually differs from what she does. She is reserved and clean, and these naturally allow her to
avoid lots of temptations and problems caused by the passions and risky affairs. Probably she
avoids those even too thoroughly.
As a rule, Vera gets married rather late and she is not a passionate lover. She tries to choose the
husband older than she. Usually shes got only one child, however she simply lives his/hers life.
She gets on quite well with her mother-in-law. Vera easily gains her husband relatives
confidence as the time goes by.
Vera is good at cooking and taking care of her husband. However, she is obsessed with the ideal
partner she would search for the whole life. Some lofty ideals would be always her aim.

Nicoleta
Meaning: victorious people
Origin: Greek
Charm, sensitivity, vivacity and sensuality; these are some of the qualities that make Nicoleta
such a likeable character. She is a sociable and extroverted woman who is appealing to others
and capable of bringing harmony to those around her. Curious, communicative and adaptable,
she is full of the joys of spring, good humoured, optimistic, cheerful and easy-going. She is
immune to discouragement and knows exactly how to defuse a dramatic situation. She is
generally well-balanced, although often highly strung and tends to want to calm things down
because she loathes conflict of any kind. While it is true that she is impatient and often gets
carried away, she wont rest until she has re-established the peace. She is feminine, seductive and
possesses the art of persuasion. She could have a gift for languages, singing or even
impersonation. Her decisions are based on her feelings and she aspires to beauty and perfection.
Pernickety and paradoxically, disorganized, she is capable of spending two hours in the
bathroom while neglecting other household chores... She is headstrong and prepared to assume
her responsibilities, however she nevertheless remains quite partial to an easy life. She is an
emotional lady who will only act or make a decision when she feels at peace with the world, but
if the opposite is true she could allow herself to slip into mild indolence. As a little girl, Nicoleta
is a mischievous little monkey who is very affectionate, demonstrative and anxious to please
her parents because her family life is very important to her. An atmosphere of dissension at home
is likely to have disastrous consequences on her emotional well-being. Her upbringing should
nevertheless include certain constraints, because she has a tendency to become easily dissipated,
too busy playing and having fun to be concerned about her school work. Last but not least, she is
a creative soul and would gain enormous satisfaction from music or dance.
Sensual and voracious, Nicoleta likes to live life to the fullest and enjoys tasting all of the
pleasures that this world has to offer. She has a good sense of humour and likes to make others
laugh, as well as participate in fun and games of all kinds. Her love life is very important to her
and she will start looking for her soul mate from a relatively tender age, although she shouldnt
have any trouble finding him - or rather, them; and could have a tough time choosing between
the tender and sentimental Paul, the handsome and masculine Mark - and Robert, who is so
protective and reassuring... What a cruel dilemma! If it wasnt for her morals, shed happily keep
all three...
Her family could have some bearing on her choice of career. Otherwise, she is likely to be
attracted to occupations in connection with esthetics, creativity, art, comfort, cuisine or
gastronomy... in liaison with the management, care and support of others (doctor, relationship
counsellor, judge, nurse, physiotherapist...), in connection with hygiene or precision; oral or
written expression.

Vasile
Meaning: "king"
Origin : Greek
Vasile is a lively, authoritarian, ambitious, self-assured and passionate man who needs to be
physically active and always moving forward. He could seem quite impressive at first, and
appears to be strong, reliable and trustworthy. Its true that he tends to be made of stern stuff, and
can occasionally be quite argumentative and even arrogant, loathes flattery and is allergic to
restriction. Impatient, and endowed with astonishing mental agility, he can also be irritable,
nervous, aggressive and possibly even violent if he considers that certain lines have been
crossed... Even so, most of the time he is extremely pleasant, responsible, curious, adaptable and
capable of introspection when necessary. He is usually fascinated by adventure and novelty, and
could often feel torn between his sense of duty and responsibility - and the desire to live his life
the way that he desires, without worrying about what anyone else thinks, and either of these
tendencies could prevail, depending on the moment and the circumstances. Vasile comes across
as a solid, sturdy character who can be leaned on, although he would prefer to relinquish some of
the responsibility that he feels for others, who benefit greatly from his helpfulness and his
tendency to take things seriously. As a child, he is brimming over with energy, and a rigid
authoritarian attitude certainly wont hold much sway with him. He is much more likely to
respect those who are frank and direct, who trust him and respect his sense of justice and equity.
As long as he has the love of his family he will probably be a very affectionate and responsible
child, although he could be a little hothead at times, and physical exercise is necessary to his
equilibrium. Not particularly subtle, sensitive or impressionable; he is conscientious, courageous
and although he can be abrupt at times, his behaviour is generally consistent.
Vasile enjoys the comfort of his home, loves his family, and seeks peace and harmony. He has a
profound sense of responsibility and justice. His feelings take up a lot of space in his life,
although he tends to protect himself and his prerogatives. He could spend a lot of time furnishing
and decorating his home, is usually good with his hands and could be a jack-of-all-trades,
notably a talented decorator.
He could try out a variety of occupations for size before he finds his true calling. Occupations
related to the exercise of power could appeal to him (justice, police, politics), as well as those
that enable him to escape the routine and travel (sales, representation, tourism), activities related
to food, cuisine, or oenology, or a profession that would allow him to express his sense of form,
esthetics, color and materials.
