Gender: F Meaning of Laurel: "laurel tree" Origin of Laurel: Latin Laurel's Popularity in 2014: #817

Laurel takes Laura back to its meaning in nature, resulting in a gentle, botanical option. It was on the rise in 2013, reaching the Top 900, and is likely to continue to climb. And even more directly than Laura, Laurel relates back to the laurel wreath signifying success and peace in ancient Rome.

Sweet Laurel has been the unlikely name of two DC Comics superheroes--Laurel Kent and Laurel Gand, aka Andromeda.

Laurel received its highest ranking in 1956, when it reached Number 241. Beware though, that it has the likelihood of being mistaken for Laura.
