It means "The Alder" as in the tree I suppose. The origin for my line, which might be the same as yours, comes from a nom de guerre. When Laurent Bouy dit LaVergne came to Quebec in 1665 he took the name LaVergne as a nom de guerre.
He was from the village of St. Jean de Cole France and the village of LaVergne was just down the road. What I don't know is whether he chose it or it was given to him by his commander, M. St. Ours.
