Veroniki Name Meaning & Origin
Origin of the name Veronica:
Of debated origin and meaning, some believe it to be derived from the Late Latin veraiconica, the word given to a piece of cloth or garment with a representation of the face of Christ on it. Veraiconica is composed of the elements verus (true) and iconicus (of or belonging to an image). Alternatively, Veronica is thought to be a variant form of Berenice (bringer of victory), a derivative of the Greek Berenikē, which is a variant of the older name Pherenikē, a compound name composed from the elements pherein (to bring) and nikē (victory).
