Veronica is the Latin transliteration of the Greek name Berenice or Βερενίκη. This name means “she who brings victory”
According to the Catholic tradition, a woman named Veronica was moved with sympathy when she saw Jesus carrying the cross to Golgotha and she gave him her veil that he might wipe his forehead. Jesus accepted the offering, held it to his face, and then handed it back to her—the image of his face miraculously impressed upon it. This piece of cloth became known as the Veil of Veronica.
