    Additional info:

    This name is of uncertain derivation, and has therefore no known meaning. Laverne is found as a French surname, from the Gaulish element 'ver(n)' meaning "alder." There is also a Californian place name La Verne (mistakingly taken by the namer to be Spanish for 'the green'), and a place in Texas called Lavernia. It may also but less likely be taken as a form of Laverna, the Roman goddess of thieves and impostors.
    But the coinage could very well be the feminine French article "la", used in combination with the male name, Vern and a further feminine touch of an "e" on the end.
