What's in a Name?

Just in case you're wondering where I got the name for Verita:

Many of our planets get their name from Greek or Roman mythology. In Roman Mythology, Veritas, was the goddess of truth. In Greek mythology, she was known as Aletheia. So I decided to call my planet Veritas.

As the novels in the series progressed, the truth became a more significant theme. So I decided to use Veritas as my title. However, Brett is never given the whole truth. So Veritas became Verita. As Brett slowly uncovers the truth she must decide what, how much, and to whom she should reveal it to.
