Other Origin(s):Scandinavian
Meaning:Protector; Army defender
Verner is a Scandinavian alternative to the German Werner. As is, the name means “protector” and “army defender.” While the moniker is fitting for your little warrior, it can also teach them that the pen is mightier than the sword. Who better to convey this message than one of the bearers himself—Verner von Heidenstam, a Swedish writer and laureate of the 1916 Nobel Prize in Literature? His poems and prose are lively and marked by a love of Swedish history and scenery. So Verner can also be a way for baby to take pride in where they’re from and pay tribute to their heritage.
