Meaning:Leafy grove; protecting hands
Laramie is a gender-neutral name stemming from the surname of early frontiersman and fur trapper Jacques La Ramee. Now well-known as a historic city in Wyoming, Laramie embodies an intriguing sense of place, with many defining the name as "leafy grove." Baby could also stake a claim in Ramee's origins in the Old German name Raymond, which means "protecting hands," though this may be too far a reach for even the most dedicated explorer.
