Verneta is a girl's name of Latin origin, meaning "spring." It is a variant of the name Verna, which means "spring green," and was popularized in the mid-to-late 20th century in Hollywood. Verna Felton was an award-winning actress and voice artist whose name is synonymous with Disney. Over a ten-year period, Verna voiced Dumbo's mother in the 1941 original film, The Fairy Godmother in Cinderella, and The Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland. Following her, Verna Fields broke into Hollywood in a big way, first as George Lucas's editor on American Grafitti and then as Steven Spielberg's editor on Jaws. Verna's work on Jaws helped usher in the era of the "summer blockbuster" as she received an Academy Award and was quickly appointed a Vice-President at Universal Studios. Her appointment made her one of the first women to enter such a role in the entertainment industry. Verna Fields' work blazed a trail from which baby Verneta can only benefit.
