Default Scene Idea

I would love a small scene in the next game where an enemy mistakenly calls Lara “Laura” and she corrects them, perhaps using violence! Put it near the beginning of the game so more people see it.

I just had to stop watching a video that got her name repeatedly wrong. This happens to me too often and I get disproportionately annoyed about it! Maybe I need to be more relaxed.

Do you think a future game should address this in some way? How would you like it done? Or best not to?

Bad guy on Walkie-talkie: “Find Laura Croft now!”
Croft: “It’s Lara actually” *stealth kill*

Is this because of Sylvester Stallone recent tweet? xD

Or have a an enemy be like "oh my god, you look just like alicia- no no you're angelina..."

And Lara replying "Actually my name's M̶a̶r̶i̶n̶a̶ Lara"

Didn't Shadow have a guy in the trailer call Lara Laura?

I think you’re talking about the game/studio (?) director Daniel Bisson. And it’s not Laura, Leira pronounced as in ‘lair’...

Dr. Dominguez does the same too.....

I'm pretty sure it was one of the generic in-game enemies, at least thats what that trailer suggested, could be Dominguez as I've not touched Shadow.

I always thought it would be cool if Lara interrogated someone and they lied to her, so she shoots a bullet just barely skimming their ear and says

"No, that's not right. Go back to the start and try again."

I don’t think it was in a trailer, but Rourke, one of Trinity’s top dudes, keeps calling her “Lera”. I like the OP’s idea, and think it could’ve been used on him, since his mispronunciation was oddly prominent. Maybe his demise could’ve been at the hands of Lara throwing him to the Yaaxil, but before he dies he starts begging, saying her name wrong, and she corrects him before shoving him into their claws.

Have they ever referenced "Laura" in the series? Maybe in the comics or books?
