Veryan Origin and Meaning

The name Veryan is a boy's name.
The name of a beautiful village on the Roseland Peninsula in Cornwall, Veryan actually derives from a series of misunderstandings: Sen Veryan (“Saint Veryan”) is a Cornish corruption of Severian, which is itself a corrupted form of the saint’s name Symphorian, to whom the village church at Veryan is dedicated.

The saint is male, but Veryan has historically been given to both male and female babies in Cornwall, though it is rare today.
