The short form of the Spanish last name De la Vega or "Of the plain/meadow". Anyone who has the last name Vega by blood is related to others who have that last name by blood, though the name has gained variety over the centuries such as "La Vega", "Vegas", or just "Vega". The House of De la Vega is a house of nobility existing in Spain from the Castile region, and has been around ever since the first Spanish kingdoms before their unification into the nation of Spain. Being of prestigious nobility, the Vega house was also involved in some coup attempts to claim the throne and rule over much of Spain. Being staunch Christians and loyal to the Catholic Church, some of the Vega house traveled west to the New World and started the many families in North America that bear the name of Vega, however again, anyone living in North America who has the Vega last name from their parents is related to other Vegas, with a common ancestor probably living three or four hundred years ago, from the time of immigration. The Vegas, also being of an old noble house, never had to pay taxes, and still don't even in Spain today. There are roughly 110,000 Vegas in the world. Also some gaming company that made SF 2 had a character in it named "Vega", and this is where most morons tend to associate the name "Vega" from. Some travelers on the way to California long ago passed through an oasis in Nevada, and they named it "Las Vegas", meaning "The meadow(s)", because of it being an oasis in the desert.
1. I despise America constantly taxing me, but since I speak Spanish as a second language and I'm very rich, and my last name is De la Vega, I'm going to get Spanish citizenship and request the King grant me a title of nobility, so I don't have to pay ridiculous income taxes anymore.

2. First idiot: "OH MAN your last name is Vega?! Vega was so badass in Street Fighter 2!!"

Vega: (facepalm) "I'm surrounded by morons."

3. First: "My last name is 'Smith'; sounds cool, huh?"

Second: "Your ancestors were likely craftsmen or peasants."

First: "Oh yeah, what were yours then huh dickhead? Vega doesn't sound like anything important."

Second: "My family bloodline is of Spanish aristocracy going back over one thousand years, and if I were born in Medieval times, I'd be a knight, and you'd be a peasant."

Vega is the brightest star in the constellation Lyra and is the fifth brightest star in the sky. The name of the star comes from Arabic and means "The Swooping Eagle". As part of the constellaion Lyra it represents a jewel set in the body of the harp.

Vega is only 25.3 light years from Earth. It is a main sequence star like our sun, however it is twice as massive and burns fifty times brighter than our sun. Vega's current age is between 200 and 500 million years (Our sun is about 4.6 billion years old).

Vega was the first star to ever be photographed, have it's spectrum analized, and it's parallax measured. It has also been in many Science Fiction novels and movies, such as "Contact." And in 14,000 AD Vega will become the North Star, replacing Polaris in the position in the sky.
Since Vega is so much more powerful and younger than our Sun, scientists doubt that life has evolved in it's solar system.

A place where we do dumb shit when we're fucked up. Where dentists marry strippers, hot school teachers get attacked by naked chinese men, and where those chinese men kidnap people named Doug. Where tigers are kidnapped, chickens roam inside, and neon strippers jack up your car.

Trunication of "Las Vegas". Used often in reference to the city in Nevada, or the lifestyle of the late 1950's that typified the "Rat Pack" era.
I blew money at a casino, saw a stage show, got drunk at a bar and got lucky with a cute lady. I guess you could say I had the Vegas experience.

A Vega is a Girl that Is usually Ginger but is for sure the Cutest,Caring, and Funniest person to come across. Vega’s are Tough but soft on the inside, They are REALLY good at sex and they have a nice round ass. A Vega can get Very Jealous from 0-100 real quick, so when you’re dating a Vega then make sure you don’t hang out with any girls besides her because she is the best you’re gonna get IN FOREVER. So if a Vega likes you and you just don’t care, THEN GOODLUCK TRYING TO FIND SOMEONE BETTER! You’re the luckiest person if a Vega likes you so don’t take that shit for granted Because other girls will not even come close her.
Person 1: Yo that girl is soo Fine and I think she likes me, but everytime I hang out with other girls she gets mad.
Person 2: I think that’s a Vega So DROP THOSE OTHER GIRLS AND GO FOR THAT VEGA NOW!!
Person 1: I’m starting to think this girl Vega is the one.
