Derived from the French surname La Follette (sometimes also written as LaFollette), which means "the madwoman", derived from French folle "madwoman" (which is etymologically related to the modern English word folly). As a first name, this name is solely used in English-speaking countries - mostly the United States. Parents who gave their child this name may have been inspired by the city LaFollette in Tennessee, or by the late American politician Robert M. La Follette, Sr. (1855-1925).
