Meaning:

Lady of Victory

Additional Information:

This is an alternate pronunciation I've come across with more emphasis on the first A. Some Lauras from the south east USA tend to correct the pronunciation this way. For the most part the pronunciation of "Lor-uh" (lor rhymes with for) is generally accepted.

Laural flower stands for 'victory' (or, 'I will win') hence the meaning "crowned with laural" or "crowned with victory" which brings rise to "lady of victory".
