Vada – Scary Mommy

Vada

The origin of the name Vada is a mystery, but the best guess is that it followed a naming trend during its peak popularity in the early 1900s: much like today's babies are given K-names, and names with the "-ayden" suffix are popular, babies of Vada's heyday were given names like Vina, Viva, Verdie, and Elva. Of course, "vada" is also a category of savory fried snacks from India, which is pretty much worth naming a baby after if you ask us.
