DIMINUTIVE OF:
lara
FORM OF:
larissa
ORIGIN:
greek  /  etruscan 
NAME ROOT:
(LáRISA / Lā́RISSA) (LAR / LAR'ES')
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
LáRISA (Λάρισα) Lā́RISSA (Λᾱ́ρισσα)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “Lárisa (Λάρισα) Lā́rissa (Λᾱ́ρισσα)”, meaning “citadel”. In Greek mythology, Larissa was a local nymph from Thessaly. She was described by Pausanias as a daughter of Pelasgus. However, Hellanicus states that the sons of Poseidon and Larissa were Achaios, Phthios, and Pelasgus. Larissa also is the capital and biggest city of the Thessaly region of Greece and capital of the Larissa regional unit. Saint Larisa (Beride) was one of twenty-six martyrs who were killed by the Goths around the year 375 under Jungerich, a persecutor of Christians. Ancient synaxaria of the Gothic Church recount the martyrdom of twenty-six Christians in the time of the emperors Valentinian, Valens, and Gratian. Lares, (from the Latin “lar(es)”, ‘hearth’, derived from the Etruscan “lar”, ‘father’), were guardian deities in ancient Roman religion. Their origin is uncertain; they may have been hero-ancestors, guardians of the hearth, fields, boundaries or fruitfulness, or an amalgam of these.
