I really like Lars, it's better than Larry which is kinda overrated, I know Lars from NFS Most Wanted (2005) there's a bot named Lars and I tried to pronounce the name and search more about it, and it has a great meaning too, might name my future son with this name.

When will this name be popular once again? Doesn't matter where. I like it a lot more than every other name in America, even my own.

Despite being the Scandinavian and German form of Lawrence, I believe it should be an individual given name in its own right.

I find Lars to be a perfect name replacement for Lawrence. Could its nickname be Larry? Pronounced in English as LAHRZ. Rhymes with the planet Mars.

The meaning of the name "Lars" does not come from "Man from Laurentum", but comes from "Laurentii", which means "Bearer of Laurels", i.e. "The Victor".

Nothing I'd name a child, but I DO like this name.
Makes me think of some male who is either a redhead or is blonde and is of Irish or Scandinavian, Swedish or something in that nature, descent.

Lars is definitely a guilty pleasure name for me. Cool name.

I named my son, Larz. The spelling with a "z" instead of an "s" does change the pronunciation a bit (from what was posted before) to the literal translation. It is a Scandanavian name for Laurance. That name means "Champion", i.e. those who had laurels placed on their heads.
