    Who remembers Veruca?

    So I looked up the Oompa Loompa song today and realized I had totally forgotten that Willy Wonka had a character called Veruca.

    So naturally I had to looked it up.

    I actually kind of like Veruca as an alternative to Veronica however, I'm a little less thrilled about it's Latin translation (verruca = wart).


    What do you guys think?
    I'm really not a fan of Veronica (it's just one of those names that bugs me for not really reason) and I could definitely picture a Veruca that is nothing like the one in the book/movie.

    Really not a name. A verucca is a wart. We used to always get them on our feet when we went to public swimming pools for lessons as kids. Do Americans have another name for them then?

    I agree with charlieandperry1, it has a pretty sound but to me it is just a synonym for wart. Maybe this is just a British thing? I have the same issue with Veronica (which is already taken in my family anyway) but I'm fond of Verona as an alternative.
