Where did it come from?
Celebrity gossip…plus a typo. :)
In early 1967, newspapers reported that TV actor Vince Edwards was going to take his ex-wife, actress Kathy Kersh, to court because she “[made] it inconvenient for him to visit their 14-month-old daughter, Devara.”
This relatively minor item landed on the front page of certain (smaller) newspapers.
As we saw the other day, though, their daughter’s first name was actually Devera — making “Devara” yet another baby name inspired by a typo. (Others include Aleeta, Bedar, Clintonia, Glenalee, Kior, Mattlock, Rainelle, Reeshemah, and Terria.)
What are your thoughts on the name Devara? Do you like it more or less than Devera?
