    Re: Russian equivalent for the name...

    There are no exact equivalents for Western names in Russian, so people traditionally use their 'real' names, which are sometimes slightly adjusted to Russian pronounciation (names with "w", for example, since there is no "w" sound in Russian).

    The common spelling for your name is Лаура (lah-oo-rah),
    but if you pronounce it as Loh-rah it will be Лора.

    The Russian name that is somewhat close to yours is Larisa and short forms from it (Lara, Lora, etc.).

    We can invent.

    Masculine name Лавр does exist, so why not?

    Конечно, на ё! Ты буковку не прописала, поэтому, наверно, и не смогла сообразить.

    No there isn't, but there is a word Лавра, which means either large monastery or laurel. Laura could also be added!
