Veronica is a female given name, the Latin form of the Greek name Berenice, Φερονίκη, which in turn is derived from Greek pherein (bring) and nikê (victory), meaning "she who brings victory". In medieval etymology, Veronica was sometimes wrongly supposed to derive from Latin vera (true) and Greek eikon (image). Its popularity in medieval and modern times is based mainly on the importance in Christianity of Saint Veronica and her Veil of Veronica.
