St. Veronica

My name came from a Christian story. A woman offered Jesus her handkerchief and Jesus took it. He then named the woman Veronica and she now goes by St. Veronica.

When my brother was supposed to be born my parents didn’t know if he was going to be a boy or girl so they decided to call him Bartosz if he was a boy and Veronica if he was a girl. My parents decided on Veronica because it wasn’t a super common name but people knew what it was and it had a Polish version. Since my brother was a boy they saved the name for me.

I really like my name because I can go to Poland and it can be turned into a Polish name, Weronika, and I don’t have a weird Polish name.
