Other Origin(s):Greek, Latin
Meaning:bright one; laurel
Laree is a feminine name of American origin, closely tied to Larry. Considered a variant of Laurence, Laree can trace its roots to the Greek Lavrenti, meaning “the bright one.” Revolving ever so close to the French name Laurent, Laree also holds claim to the Roman Laurentius and its proximity to the laurel. Known in Latin as laurus, the laurel has been used since antiquity as a mark of excellence wherein a crown of its leaves would be placed upon a champion’s head. While Laree is no doubt a much cooler take on an enduring classic, it may still spark in baby a taste for high achievement.
