Veronica

Latin form of Berenice, influenced by the ecclesiastical Latin phrase, "vera icon." Also the name of a legendary saint who wiped Jesus's face with a towel and then found his image imprinted in the fabric. The name was influenced by film actress and pin-up model Veronica Lake during the 1940s and by English child actress Veronica Cartwright starting in the late 1950s. Also associated with Veronica "Ronnie" Lodge, the fictional character from the Archie Comic book series created in 1942, who has kept an ageless influence on the name as a high school teenager for more than 65 years.
