Etymology

Verlac is a compound name. Ver means worm or serpent, and lac means lake.[1][2]

Cassandra chose Ver because it sounds a lot like "verre", which is glass in French, so saying the name would make it sound like it translates to Glass Lake.[1]

Symbol

The Verlac family ring

As a reference to the meaning of their name, the Verlac family symbol is a snake; the design of their crest of arms, in particular, is of a serpent rising out of a lake in coils.[3] Their family ring is in the shape of one.[4]
