Said ... "Veronica's name itself is said to be derived from the Greek words meaning true image/icon."... but how? As Greek name, it is "Berenike" and has no such meaning (nike is victory, hence it means "bearer of victory", Wikipedia article says it is originally? Macedonian name and *phero-nike is its Greek equivalent (cf. Christphoros, "bearer of Christ"). Even if this assertion could be sourced, it is only described as "(XXXX) people acclaimed ..."? Since as Greek, apparently it conveys no such meaning. --Cat68 22:17, February 17, 2007 (PST)
