For me, Lamar conjures up images of a wise, soft-spoken black man who doesn’t talk a lot, but when he does everyone listens because it’s meaningful. Obviously not everyone named Lamar is going to be that person but it’s what my brain defaults to when I think of it. I think that’s a great association, I like this name a lot.

The suffix "mar" comes from Roman descent (Marcus). The "La" is of French origin.

But in full reality this name, like most names (whether or not they were created by black people) has no race. White people have this name because it has 100% European roots. Nothing is ghetto about most of the names that many black people wear.
