Verity Name Meaning
English (Yorkshire): nickname for a truthful person, or perhaps rather for someone who was in the habit of insisting repeatedly on the truth of the stories he told, from Middle English verite ‘truth(fulness)’ (Old French verité). The surname may sometimes have been acquired by someone who had acted the part of the personified quality of Truth in a mystery play or pageant.
