I can give you a little information regarding the origin of Lara's name - she was originally going to be called Laura Cruz, however, the developers feared that Americans wouldn't take to the name Laura, and wouldn't be able to pronounce it properly either, so they changed it Lara. Lara Cruz didn't sound upper-class English-y enough, so they changed the last name to Croft.

If I was going to rename Lara Croft, I'd call her Estelle Henshingly. :D

Yeah that's right. And she was going to be of Latin-american origin :)

Well since this is about Lara in general, guess it'd better be in General Chat. Moving...

Of course you prefer Lara Croft now. Not picking on you personally, it's probably true of all of us--but if she had been Laura Cruz all this time we'd be saying "Laura Cruz... a real adventurer name." :p

As long as Lara is Lara, I don't care what Lara's name is!

I like the LN "Cruz", but I prefer the "Cruise" spelling. I always use to pronounce Cruz as it looks.

I think she should have been called Regina Fallangi

If I were going to reinvent Lara Croft (which I am not going to do btw ;)) I would:

*give her red hair and green eyes.

*make her the estranged daughter of a forensic pathologist (they prod and poke corpses to work out how they became corpses ;)).

*call her Victoria Jenkins.

Thatīs right; she was supposed to be named Cruz and be spanish. :) But actually from the very begining,she wasnīt supposed to be a woman at all,but a man. Instead (and thankfully),equality of status won,and they changed that plan. :D Until that point,games always had a male hero..

I think her name is just right for her character as it is. I wouldn't have been able to come up with anything better.

:vlol: It does! :D

Not always. One of my favourite games, Kyrandia II: Hand Of Fate, had a female heroine called Zanthia. She's actually really cool - kind of a 90's girl. Her and Lara would get on well! :D
