The name "Vergisson"

one version of the origin

With an “é” ending, the names of many villages in the Mâconnais region are of Latin origin. Vergisson is therefore an exception. It is of Celtic origin: “verg” meaning “step” in Celtic. The configuration of the village, inserted in a natural circus with tiered hamlets and the presence of numerous megaliths, confirms this hypothesis.
