Alright. My name is Lara. So I was curious where I got that name from.
It is of Latin origin, and the meaning of Lara is “protection”. From “Lares”, referring to the individual gods of Roman households, the protectors of home and fields. Also possibly (Latin) “cheerful; famous”. It may also be traced to the Greek Larissa. Lara is popular in Russia as a surname and place name. Literary: name of a central character in Boris Pasternak’s novel “Doctor Zhivago”.
