Meanings and history of the name Veryan: | Edit

"Recorded as Farren, Farian, Farran, Varian, Varran, Varren, Verran, Veryan, Verryan, Verring, Verrion, and others, this is a surname of at least three possible origins. It may be Olde English, Old French or Gaelic Irish and can either originate from the medieval "farhyne", which is either an occupational name for an oxherd, from the pre 7th century word "fearr", meaning a bull and "hine", a servant, or as a nickname from "faeger", meaning handsome, and "hine", as before. The second is a variant of Farrant which is either a nickname for a person with grey hair or the Old French personal name Ferrant, a form of Ferdinand. The third possible source is from the Gaelic surname O' Farachain, "forcha", meaning a bolt of lightning!" -- from http://www.surnamedb.com/surname.aspx?name=veryan
