About VeronikaGo back to names list
Veronika is a spelling variant of the feminine name Veronica, which comes from the Latin ‘vera icon’ which translates as ‘True Picture’. The Saint Veronica is said to have wiped the sweat from Jesus’ face, and when she did so it is said that his face left an imprint, a ‘True Picture’ of the face of Christ on the cloth. The version spelled with a ‘K’ is most often found in Eastern Europe where ‘K’ usually replaces ‘C’.
