This name was perhaps originated from the Slavic goddess of spring "Vesna".

This name is derived from the word "VERNAL", an adjective relating to, or occuring in the spring. It alsom means youthful, springlike, young.

I think this name is ugly and dated. It brings to mind a mean old woman.

This might also be used as a pet form of Veronica.

Verna is also an old Finnish name. Same origin: from Latin, meaning vernal, springlike.

The meaning "spring" for the name Verna is just lovely. This is a wonderful, pretty, vintage name. Definitely deserves a comeback.

If you name your child Verna she will get comments like "That's my grandma's name" and her name will be quite often mispronounced as "Vera." Don't do it.

I love the name Verna, but I'm willing to admit I may be biased given that my name is Verne. In response to the above comment, however, it's actually improbable that a child would encounter someone with a grandmother named Verna. With baby boomers being the current generation of grandparents, a grandma is much more likely to be named, say, Cindy or Lisa.

This is my daughter’s name and I love our choice so much. She was born in the Spring which is part of why we chose it. It’s a powerful name for a powerful little woman. I think it’s a great blend of strength in sound and a more feminine, kind of fertile meaning of Spring. I love how uncommon yet familiar and easy to pronounce it is. Also, it has a surprisingly great pool of nicknames: Vee, Vern (gender ambiguous), Vera (which is much trendier and more accessible if that’s what she’s after later in life). I think it’s also a name that could travel well internationally. Love this name!
