The Bulgarian name "Latinka" and the name originated from it - "Latina" are feminine names similar to "Lata". This is obvious, but an interesting fact is that like "lata" the Bulgarian word "latinka" means a plant - the flower "nasturtium". In Bulgaria "Latinka" and "Latina" have a nameday on Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter) - the day of the flowers and willows (the other names of trees also have a nameday).

A sweet name in Sanskrit. Sadly, it wouldn't work very good in Swedish. "Lata" is the plural form of "lat", which means "lazy; idle".
