Origin English, Latin: The laurel or sweet bay tree, symbolic of honor and victory. As an English name, Laura has been used since the 13th century. Famous bearers include Laura Secord (1775-1868), a Canadian heroine during the War of 1812, and Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867-1957), an American author who wrote the ‘Little House on the Prairie’ series of novels. Feminine form of the Late Latin name Laurus, which meant “laurel”. This meaning was favorable since in ancient Rome the leaves of laurel trees were used to create victors’ garlands.
The name was borne by the 9th-century Spanish martyr Saint Laura, who was a nun thrown into a vat of molten lead by the Moors. It was also the name of the subject of poems by the 14th-century Italian poet Petrarch. — This name means “Laurel, from the place of laurel trees, laurel branch, laurel wreath”. The Laurel tree was sacred to the God Apollo and is a symbol of wisdom and glory. The name Laura and its variants are derived from the “bay laurel plant”, which in the Greco-Roman era was used as a symbol of victory, honor or fame. In British North America, it is very likely that the name Laura was extremely popular for female newborns until its rapid decline starting in the late 19th century.
