Lars

This charmingly foreign-sounding name comes the Scandinavian translation of the Latin word “Laurentius,” which means, literally, “man from the place of laurel,” but also, metaphorically, “victory.” In the ancient world, laurel wreaths were the stuff of Olympians and Roman Emperors. Lars is a short but strong  name for a man meant to lead a victorious life.
