His older brothers were named "Harold" and "Homer," so, I guess they all were given unusual names. I've never met another person with this name. Even though it is unusual, which makes it sort of special, no one has ever made fun of him because of his name, at least to my knowledge. The name does seem to give others trouble when it comes to pronouncing or spelling it (although it seems pretty straight forward to me)." Mar. 21, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "I was told Verlin meant "true cloth" and was of Scottish origin. In my youth, I had a lisp and often pronounced the name Rolan. Teachers and students alike often laughed. My family moved to a different part of town when I was a Junior in high school. Our house was just around the corner from a Mom & Pop Malt shop. When I finally went around for a milkshake, I was shocked to see the proprietor's name on the glass window beside the front door. "Verlin Copas" was his name and we talked and laughed about our names and how people often mispronounced it." Dec. 25, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "Hello everybody, my name is Verlin, it`s my last name. Here in Finland this name is very unique.It is pronouncied as it is spelled. My family has had this name in this country about 200 hundred years, I`ve heard. I thought before, that family name Verlin came from Estonia (not very far away from skandinavian country Finland), because I know, that there exists a village called Verlin and itīs used as a surname and family name there. Somehow it sounds very swedish too and of course german, because of town Berlin." Mar. 31, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "Good Morning ! Yep my name is also Verlin when I was a little younger some people had a veryt hard time to pronounce the name and most of the time I would say app 40% of the time I have to pronounce the name again and maybe a 3rd time. This brings question like ( where did you get that Name ) or how do you spell your name ! The short of this is I ask them if they have heard of Berlin, just drop the B and add a V and thats the ease way I found to let people know, I've always had good remnarks from people about my name. Of course my parents named me! I'm proud of my name enought to name my first son Verlin Jr., I'm now only 63 years of age and I would never think of changing my name of using another. It is different and hard to remember once learned they never forget and they can remember more about meeting you the first time than meeting most other common names I think."

  • "My name is Verlin, and I was born in New Orleans, La., in 1943, named after my Uncle Verlin, my mother's brother. Except for two cousins with that name, I never met another Verlin, nor heard of one until this year. I did read columns in the NY Times by nature writer, Verlyn Klinkenborg. I never liked the name because we moved to Texas where they pronounced it in an ugly way. In Louisiana, the French inflection sounded nice, but Texans turned me off to my name, and I changed it several times, the last time legally. I retain it as my middle name to honor my mother's brother and my mother's intent, but I have never grown to really like the name. It's hard to believe that there have been more than two thousand Verlins in the US since 1880." Jun. 11, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Hi Everybody. My name is also Verlin. Not sure how that came to be, because it was my father's name and he/we are of Cherokee decent. Irish on mother's side. I was once told that Verlin is an combination of two Irish words: "Ver" meaning green and "lin" or "lyn" or "lynne" meaning meadow - or green meadow. Can anybody verify this?

  • "Verlin is my last name. In response to the question regarding its origination, the name most likely came to Ireland by way of the Norse or Dane invasion. In historical records the name appears as Verling and at some point the "-g" was dropped. In terms of the pronunciation, I like it as verl-in, as in pearl-in. To me, ver-lin sounds too harsh. All-in-all I think it is unique, and for that reason I like it" Feb. 1, 2007: Report as inappropriate
