What does the name Vega mean?

The meaning of the name “Vega” is: “Falling Star”.

Additional information: Vega has three diferent origins and meanings. One is a title for Mary, the mother of Jesus, as “María de la Vega”. Here Vega refers to a meadow. This word has a pre-roman origin, and is strictly non-latin, maybe one of the elder words in Spanish.
The second origin is a secularization of the first meaning. So the name “Vega” alone sugests the freshness of a wildflower meadow.
The third meaning is the name of the star Alpha Lyrae or Vega. This comes from the word “waqi” in the Arab expression “an-nasr al-waqi” that means “falling eagle” or “descending eagle”.
