As given to me by another Verlene:The name Verlene makes you very idealistic and generous, with a strong desire to uplift humanity leading you into situations where you can express your desire to serve others. You want to assume responsibilities and to look after people; however, you can become too involved in other people's problems and tend to worry. Your name gives you a natural desire to express along artistic and musical lines. You desire a settled home and family life, and are expressive and attentive to your loved ones. You must be careful not to become possessive and jealous of those close to you, however, as you could attract losses and unfortunate experiences. If you attach an ideal of service to your life, you could find great happiness and could express a very beautiful, happy, responsible, artistic and generous nature. The weakness of this name is in worry, which in turn affects the nervous system, creating a tendency to be high strung or over-sensitive to the thoughts of others.
Very interesting I thought, as some of this does relate to me!
