Meaning of the baby name VENERANDA.

  

VENERANDA.  Italian.  Sicilian.  Another form of Venera (q.v.), the name of a saint so called because she was born on a Friday, the day of Venus.

St. Veneranda, Nov. 14 (Venera, Veneria, Veneris, Venus, Parasceve), V. M., one of the Auxiliary Saints.  Patron of Acci Reale, of Avola (the ancient Hybla), and of Lecce in Otranto.  Many are the stories and divers the days, dates, and places assigned to this saint.  The Martyrology of Salisbury, Nov. 14, says that by her preaching and martyrdom she converted nearly a thousand persons.  Papebroch says that Venera, claimed by Cajetano as a Sicilian saint killed by her brothers, was called Venera because she was born on a Friday, the day of Venus; she was afterwards called Parasceve.  One of the fabulous legends makes Veneranda the daughter of Agatho and Politia.  She is said to have lived in the time of the Apostles, in the reign of Marcus Aurelius, of Antoninus, of Diocletian; and the scene of her life and martyrdom is laid in France, Sicily, Rome, the Abruzzi, Calabria, and other places.  R.M., Nov. 14.  AA.SS. (A Dictionary of Saintly Women, Dunbar, v.2, 1905).
