Mesnil-Verclives is a commune in the Eure department in Normandy in northern France.

Etymology[edit]

Old North French Mesnil 'house' and Verclives (Warcliva 11th century) Old English clif or Old Norse klif. Verclives is located on a small hill. The first element could be Old English waeter. In French intervocalic consonants weakened and erased.

Old English clif or Old Norse klif can be found in several place-names of Normandy such as Witeclive 'white cliff' former hamlet near Evreux; Carquelif (Caleclif 1224 in Saint-Martin-en-Campagne); Risleclif former hamlet near Saint-Samson-de-la-Roque; Mont Escalleclif (12th century, Doville); Mont Entenclin (Mont Estenclif 'stone cliff')...

The hill was used as an observation post at the battle of Brémule.
