Origins Available: French, German


The origins the old family name lar can be found within medieval France. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in France, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the lar family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname lar was an occupational name for a person who worked at a granary. The name translates literally from the Old French as of the granary.

lar Early Origins



The surname lar was first found in Picardy (French: Picardie) in northern France, where the family took their name from Delor, a village in the department of Aisne, in the district of Neufchtel.
