One version of the origin is that Larisa derived from Latin word "larus" (seagull).

I believe Larisa comes from the ancient Greek word "Larissa," which means "stronghold."

Larisa is a Russian name given to me, meaning laughter. The short form I use is Rissa, it means laugh.

Possibly originated from Latin larus for gull or in Russian: Чайка.

Larisa literally means Laughter in the Spanish language, and a seagull in Greek.
It is also the name of a historical city in accent Greece that refers to the word CITADEL (meaning listed below) Later this name was associated with myths and idol worship leaders, then later of a martyr saint.

A CITADEL is the core fortified area of a town or city. It may be a fortress, castle, or fortified center. The term is a diminutive of "city" and thus means "little city", so called because it is a smaller part of the city of which it is the defensive core.
