  • Additional Info:
    It is most likely that the name originated from the Gallo-Roman personal name Virilius, but this is not proven. It is also possible that the name could derive from a surname; a habitation name from Verley in Picardy. Ver, on it's own, is a habitation name with a French origin. It could also be connected to the medieval name Ver, derived from the Latin Verus (meaning: True). Ver enjoyed some popularity with this usage in medieval Englad to honor a 4th century bishop. Thus, the exact linneage of the name is unknown, but could come from any one of these roots.
