"LAR-ia" A form of Lara which in Latin means "sining, famous one" Another character of Anne MCCaffrey's and I've always loved the smooth sound it has.

A quick internet search of Laria says it's either Scottish meaning "servant of Lawrence," Greek for "the sars are mine,[sic]" Truthfully, I don't believe either one of these. The internet is full of inaccuracies, especially when it comes to name meanings.
