Larry: baby boy name meaning and popularity


A diminutive of the Latin name Lawrence, meaning "from Laurentum" (an ancient Roman city). And like the ancient Romans, your little Larry will be an innovative soul. Like when he runs out of sidewalk chalk and uses your best lipstick instead.


Larry is a nickname.

Famous people named Larry:

Actors Larry David, Larry Hagman, and Larry Lane; basketball player Larry Bird; Google co-founder Larry Page; TV host Larry King; comedian Larry the Cable Guy (real name: Daniel Lawrence Whitney).

Fun fact:

Your little Larry might be a fan of the super-buff Larry the Lobster character on the animated series "Spongebob Squarepants."
