Personal experiences with the name Velma: | Edit

My grandmother's name was Velma and she loved just about everything and I am guessing this includes her name, though I never asked her. She was accepting of all people just as they were and saw the best in everyone. I would like to pay homage to her in naming my daughter, but...I am struggling because I don't personally care for the name.
