Laura in English is pronounced LAW-ra (in oher European languages it is often LOW-ra, to rhyme with now.)

It is a feminine form of the Late Latin boy's name Laurus, which means "laurel" or, by exention "crowned with laure
It was quite a popular name in the Middle Ages and the later Renaissncet Laura, but more famously, Laura was the name of the ideal woman to whom the 14th century Italian poet Petrarch addressed his most famous sonnets.

In the 19th century the name Laurel began to be used; this name still exists but is less popular than Laura.
