L is for...

For the letter L, I wanted to find something (anything!) fun about my name. I found that it's actually a noun.

Laura - A number of hermitages or cells in the same neighborhood occupied by anchorites who were under the same superior

Huh? I have no idea what that means. I always thought my name was derived from the laurel tree.

Being named after a tree isn't very exciting, either. Next, I tried to find infamous women named Laura. Nada. Maybe I should be the first.

There are a few famous people named Laura. A former first lady, a few actors, a controversial doctor and two authors. Meh… Maybe I should stick with the tree.

Do you have an interesting origin for your name? (Or pen name)

Happy L day!
