Other Origin(s):Greek
Meaning:She who brings victory; True image
Veranica is a name for girls. A variant of Veronica, it’s believed to be a Latinized version of the Greek name Berenice, which means “she who brings victory.” However, there are other sources that define it as “true image.” This association is made stronger by the story of Saint Veronica, in which she gives Jesus her veil to wipe his forehead on, while he’s carrying the cross to Calvary. When he returns the used veil to her, his face is miraculously captured on it. Seen today as a Christian relic, the veil of Veronica is believed to quench thirst, cure blindness, and raise the dead. So if you’re looking for a name that speaks volumes about your faith, Veranica should top the list.
