  1. We live in South Africa and wanted a name that you could pronounce in our local languages as well as in English. We came upon the name watching Lara Croft – haha. Dad loved the brave and adventurous character. We wanted the name to be easy to pronounce as dad and myself both have difficult names. We loved the simplicity of the name!
