Vernon is a commune in the department of Eure in the Haute-Normandie region in northern France.

It lies on the banks of the Seine River, about midway between Paris and Rouen. The city is well known for its production of engines by the SNECMA group.

History[edit]

1027−1030 : Mention in a Latin written document as Vernum, the /m/ at the end could be the last remains of the Celtic magus 'plain' or 'market', or it is a simple latinization, and the origin is just the Celtic word *uerno, alder tree (Breton gwern, Irish fern).

The village gave its name to a family who took part to the Norman Conquest of England and then became a British first name.
