the bay or laurel plant
Laura has been around forever and isn’t leaving. Her name is associated with the bay or laurel plant, which victory crowns were made from. Like Mary and Elizabeth, this name is for moms and dads who roll their eyes at trendy names and spellings. They’re interested in a timeless, respected baby name that will serve their daughter well, whether she’s a president or a poet. While parents’ ardor for her has cooled down from its heyday (the 1960s to '80s), Laura will always remain a champ.
