Ailsa derives its name from Ailsa Craig, the name of a rocky island located off of Scotland. Though the name’s origin doesn’t seem certain, it’s often been linked as being derived from Alfsigesey meaning “Álfsigr’s island”, Álfsigr an Old Norse male name meaning “elf victory” composed of Old Norse elements alfr(elf) + sigr (victory). Other meanings I’ve seen listed for it are “fairy rock” or “Elizabeth’s rock” but those don’t seem very likely.
Meaning: uncertain though it’s been linked to Alfsigesey “Álfsigr’s island”

Veronica is the Latin transliteration of Berenice, itself the Latinized form of Berenike, the Ancient Macedonian form of Ancient Greek Pherenike meaning “bringing victory”, “bearer of victory”, or “bringer of victory”, made up of Ancient Greek elements phero (to bring, carry, bear) and nike (victory). While phero derives from a PIE root word, nike is a word of uncertain etymology, perhaps derived from a pre-Greek word.
However, Veronica later became associated with the Latin phrase vera icon meaning “true image”, in reference to Saint Veronica, a woman who wiped the face of Jesus Christ on her veil; his face apparently became imprinted on the veil which later became known as The Veil of Veronica.
Veronica is also the name of a genus of flowers which seems to have been named after Saint Veronica.
