Vega

Vega is the name of the brightest star in the constellation Lyra and the fifth brightest star in the night sky. The name derives from the Arabic phrase an-nasr al-wāqi النَّسْر الوَاقِع‎ meaning “the falling eagle”; nasr is the Arabic word for vulture (and eagle) which derives from a Proto-Semitic origin. Because Vega comes from the wāqi part, the name would actually mean “falling (eagle)”.

Vega is also a Spanish surname meaning “meadow” which seems to derive from a Basque origin; it originated as a locational name for someone who lived near a meadow or a fertile lowland. However, it’s also a Spanish female name which may have arisen from the Spanish title Nuestra Señora de la Vega (“Our Lady of the Meadow”)- Marian titles seem to be very popular among Spanish families.

Vēga (वेग) is also an Indian female name which comes from the word meaning “speed, velocity, momentum” derived from Sanskrit.

Origin: Arabic, Proto-Semitic; Basque; Sanskrit

Meaning: “the falling (eagle)” or “the falling (vulture)”; “meadow”; “speed, velocity, momentum”

Usage: Spanish, English, Indian, Hindi, Marathi
