Veronique 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).

- Comments and insights on the name Veronique
My mom name is Veronica and she named my middle name Veronique after her. I LOVE IT! But people always thinks it ( ver-neek ) instead of ( ver-o-neek ) it kind of annoying.
My parents were debating on naming me Veronique (which i would have preferred). I think its a gorgeous and beautiful name (much better than Veronica in my opinion) and Vero is such a cute nickname! I think its even better if you live somewhere french because they are actually able to pronounce it properly!
