The name Veronica is a girl's name of Latin origin meaning "she who brings victory; true image". Veronica is ranked #414 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Unusual Antique Baby Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "Quick Question Thread?!".
From the experts:
The name Veronica projects a triple-threat image: at once saintly, sensuous, and strong.
Veronica was the name of the compassionate woman who wiped Jesus's face when he was on his way to Calvary and whose cloth was miraculously imprinted with his image: she is now the patron saint of photographers.
Then there was Veronica (born Constance) Lake, the peekaboo blonde of the 1940s, and the sultry, dark-haired rival of Betty in the Archie comics. And, more recently, we've had tough teen private eye, Veronica Mars.
Veronica is also the name of an herb with small, bright blue flowers.
Veronica was in the Top 100 from 1972 to 1991, but it might not be too soon for a comeback—sans the dated nickname Ronnie.
