Etruscan, Female, Proto-Indo-European, V names, Virtues/Attributes


Virginia is the feminine form of Verginius or Virginius, an Ancient Roman family name of uncertain etymology. It’s long been associated with Latin virgo meaning “maid, virgin” though it’s also possible that it’s related to Vergilius/Virgilius (from which the name Virgil comes from), also of uncertain etymology though associated with Latin virga meaning “young shoot” or “twig, rod; wand”. It seems more likely, however, that the name is of Etruscan origin.
