Earla is a feminine name primarily used in the US that comes from Old English, Germanic, and Norse roots. Meaning “noblewoman,” “princess,” “warrior,” or “countess,” Earla derives from Earl, a typically masculine title borne by noble members of society. This prim and proper title was brought into the world by the movement of the Anglo-Saxons to England and shares similarities with the Scandinavian jarl, meaning “chieftain.” Adding “a” breathes rhythm and melody into Earl, making Earla the perfect choice for your lively little sovereign.
