Meaning:Crowned with laurel; From Laurentum
Larry is a masculine name of Latin and British origin. Commonly a diminutive form of Laurence, this name has grown to stand on its own. Laurence itself has a rich history, which thankfully for Larry, can be passed down with ease. The title refers to someone who comes from Laurentum, an ancient Roman city. This traditional name means "crowned with laurel" and invites lovely, natural imagery that can make anyone's heart swell. While a laurel wreath was historically worn by gods, emperors, and victors, passing the meaning down to Larry can light a fire in this powerful little boy.
