612 Veronika

This minor planet has a feminine name, which originally comes from Greek for "bringer of victory." The referent of this name, if any, is unknown.

It is suspected that the name of this minor planet was inspired by the letters in its provisional designation, 1906 VN, in a pattern similar to its nearby neighbors, 610 Valeska and 611 Valeria.

The symbol for this minor planet is a large Latin letter V with a small Latin letter N inside it.
