Meaning:Alder tree; Springtime
Leverne is a French gender-neutral name thought to spring from the Gaulish word vern. Meaning "alder tree," such roots instill in Leverne a sacred quality that can be traced back to Celtic mythology, where it symbolizes life, balance, and mystery. In other mythical realms, Leverne earns the status of a dark deity by virtue of the Roman goddess Laverna. Originally a spirit of the underworld, Leverne was the protectress of thieves, enlisted to help them execute plans without comprising their honest reputation. Those who shudder at the thought of such dangerous deeds can find lightness once again in Leverne's alternative Latin root vernus, meaning "springtime."
