"she who brings victory; true image"

Veronica Origin and Meaning

The name Veronica is girl's name of Latin origin meaning "she who brings victory; true image".
The name Veronica projects a triple-threat image: at once saintly, sensuous, and strong. The name derives from Berenice, the Latin form of the Greek name Berenike "she who brings victory", with the spelling influenced by the Latin phrase vera icon "true image". 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, although hit CW show Riverdale, loosely based on the aforementioned Archie comics, may provide a boost.
