Lando is a boy’s name with German and French origin. In German, Lando means “famous throughout the land,” “glory to the homeland,” or “famous land,” and is usually the nickname for those called Orlando or Ronaldo. Lando has also come a long way from its French variant Lance, meaning “spear” or “lance,” which is commonly used in Spanish and Portuguese cultures. But, if you're looking at a name like Lando, you're probably naturally filling in the silent gap afterward with Calrissian. Lando Calrissian is a beloved smuggler and best friend of Han Solo in the Star Wars franchise. He’s stolen the hearts of many and no doubt baby will, too.
