I much prefer Verna to the Italian Virna. Virna seems made up while Verna is linked with the Latin word. It's not so different to Vanda or Vilma... Why not? Interesting.
Beautiful, unusual, mature name! Verna has beauty! I love this name, it is also so rare, not many people have it. Beautiful, quality, elegant name.

I don’t care what anyone says, this name ROCKS!
Looks very outdated and old fashioned.
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!
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.
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.
The name Verna was given to 25 girls born in the US in 2015.
The meaning "spring" for the name Verna is just lovely. This is a wonderful, pretty, vintage name. Definitely deserves a comeback.
Verna is also an old Finnish name. Same origin: from Latin, meaning vernal, springlike.
Verna is also a Finnish name and it's pronounced as VER-nu.

This might also be used as a pet form of Veronica.
I think this name is ugly and dated. It brings to mind a mean old woman.
