"My name is Launa! Pronounced LagUna. I am named after my grandmother and my 3rd Great Grandmother. Family lore says it is Indian and means Indian princess when you are going and Old Squaw when you are older. I have no idea if this true and I can't seem to find any verification that the name belongs to any Indian tribe." Apr. 15, 2018:

"I'm Launa too lol "Lawn-aaaa"
No doubt alot of mix ups in spelling and pronounciation to this day, but I always loved my name. It made me feel special because I never knew anyone else with the same name as me. Wouldn't change it for sure. When you think about it the added "u" makes more sense than just "Lana" for "Lawn-a" **side note..when filling out forms put a capital "N" when writing out your name, will save ya from getting certificates and things that say "LauRa" lol" May. 14, 2011:

"My grandmother was Ethel Launa Ward. She pronounced her middle name LayOONa, and said it came from her Cherokee ancestry. I am not able to find this name, however, in native american name lists. The only origin remarks I've read about the name place it as either Germanic, or Hawaiian. So two very different sources. Wish I knew more about the Cherokee aspect." May. 2, 2012:
