Meaning:Soft-napped fabric
Velvet is a girl’s name of English origin. The name is taken from the luxurious, soft-napped fabric that was often associated with nobility. While it makes sense to name your little one Velvet after their smooth and supple skin, the likes of Olympian Velvet Barnes and professional Irish-Canadian wrestler Velvet McIntyre illustrate that the moniker ought not to be misunderstood as being meek. Strength and softness go hand in hand, and baby will be the wiser, taking this to heart.
