I like this as a middle name especially, but it's a great first name too. I hope the actress Laverne Cox makes it more popular!

I know, like seriously, you can say positive or neutral stuff about the name in the description but don't give your negative opinions!
(Besides, I like poodle skirts)

I agree with you. They should write about the name and leave it like that...

I really can't stand when I look up a name only to have nameberry editors vomit all over it. We don't need your opinions, editors. Just tell us about the name and go away!

This name has such positive feelings for me. My favoritest person in the whole world was a great aunt called Laverne. Because of that, it's one of those names that I don't love but would absolutely consider using it in some way to honor my late aunt.
