Other Origin(s):Swiss
Meaning:Respect, revere
Vreni is a girl's name of Latin origin and comes from the term vereri, meaning "respect" and "revere." Vreni is also the Swiss variant of Verena and one of the country's most famous names due to Vreni Schnider's exploits. In 1988, at 23, she exploded onto the scene at her maiden Winter Olympics event by winning two gold medals in the slalom. The three-time gold-medal-winning athlete was later voted Swiss Sportswoman of the Century. Vreni Schnider is respected and revered and has paved the way for baby Vreni to follow.
