The name Veruca is a girl's name of Latin origin meaning "wart". Veruca and is often added to lists like Disney Channel Baby Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "AB, BC, CD, DE, EF, FG, GH....GIRLS".
From the experts:
Veruca is a name Roald Dahl made up for the horrid little girl Veruca Salt in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. A modern rock band adopted the name, though few parents familiar with the original namesake and meaning would choose to pass it on to an innocent child. Verruca is another spelling, but don't use that one either.
