When we decided to buy land or a home in Puerto Rico, we began to discuss a name for our new home. We played with several different ideas before combining our favorite grandmothers’ first names. Kristopher (my husband) was especially close to his grandmother Ava. My grandmother was like a second mother to me and while her name was Lillian Luveda, many people called her Veda (pronounced vee-duh). We combined the names and then did a search for the meaning of this new name.
Vaeda, according to http://www.babynames.com, means: “Eternal knowledge.” It is identified as Indian in origin.
And with that, our new home had a name – Casa Vaeda (pronounced vay-duh with the accent on the first syllable).
Loosely translated, it means house of eternal knowledge.
