What does the name Faith mean?

Are you interested in what the name Faith means? Let's understand this question.

The name Vera is of Greek origin. It comes from the name of Pistida, which means faith. The meaning and energy of the name - faith, belief, truth.

The history of the origin of the name Faith intersects with the names Hope and Love. There is a legend about how, by order of Emperor Adrian, the three sisters Faith, Hope and Love were executed for refusing to renounce Christianity. The execution took place in front of their mother Sophia. Sophia spent two days at the grave of her daughters, and only on the third day the Lord accepted the soul of a long-suffering mother. These events took place in 137 year.

However, historians suggest that Sophia, Faith, Hope and Love were not historical figures, but were allegorical characters.

Remarkable is the fact that, when translated into the Slavic language, the names of the saints were translated literally. Usually, the names retain the original pronunciation, only adapting to a specific language.

Women with the name Vera are most often closed and recessed into themselves.However, they are very reliable, diligent and honest.
