Verdon, a popular name
The Verdon, which runs through no less than thirty-two municipalities in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, the Bouches-du-Rhône and the Var departments, lent its name to several of them: Les Salles-sur-Verdon, Sainte-Croix-du-Verdon, Esparron-de-Verdon, Vinon-sur-Verdon, Artignosc-sur-Verdon, Saint-Laurent-du-Verdon and La Palud-sur-Verdon. The name ‘Verdon’ – or ‘Vardu’ at the time of the Gauls – comes from the pre-Celtic term ‘vara’, or water, even though one would like to believe it is rather linked to its striking green colour.
