Meaning & History
A medieval English form of Eulalia
The name came about due to a confusion of the second L with R in the local dialect of the West Country. The cult of St Eulalia spread from Spain and France to the English West Country, where, like Ellery (a corruption of Eulalie) for girls, Elaria seems to have been used the most.
