Other Origin(s):Uncertain
Meaning:Lively; White wave
Vevay is a girl’s name of contested origin. Although it can mean “lively” in Latin, some sources point towards “white wave.” The moniker was put on the map in the early 1800s when Swiss immigrants christened their new home in Indiana after an actual Swiss town called Vevey. This picturesque locale on the shores of Lake Geneva is known for being the headquarters of Nestle and the invention of milk chocolate. So if you’d like your little one to take pride in where they’re from, Vevay is a sweet name!
