Happy Name Day, Laura! Všechno nejlepší k svátku!

Today we honor Laura.  Happy Name Day, Laura!
The name Laura is of Latin origin and means "the bay, or laurel plant."  In classical times, a crown was made from the leaves of the bay laurel for heroes and victors as a symbol of honor and victory.  It became a popular name after the 1944 film "Laura".
