Veronique is here
Didn't post under announcements because that should be for new parents, I think.
Heard from our Israeli family that new granddaughter is here!
As much time as I spend on this board and love names, I don't think I've ever seen/heard Veronique before.
A quick look on behindthename tells me that it's French Veronica (yes, I assumed this) and that it is related to Vera and Bernice. The meaning is something like "brings victory."
Veronique's big brother is Victor. Even though some are not crazy about same initials for siblings, I kinda like how they have sort of the same root connection. At least it's not Victor/Victoria! And I don't think the parents were being lazy about it.
I'm still saying it out loud and listened on Forvo for pronunciation. I can hear it in my mind and spell it, but doesn't come out of my mouth properly for some reason.
What do you guys think of the name and the connection to her brother?
Negativity won't hurt my feelings; I didn't name her. Would love her even if she had a "stupid" name I hate! Oh, and she is so cute! Only less than 48 hours old and gorgeous; I've been around enough babies to know that their "beauty" doesn't come that quickly sometimes.
Thanks for letting me babble. Although I love participating, it's really fun to have my own stuff to share.
