This name derives from the name of a bird, from the Proto-Germanic "*laiw(a)rikon", meaning “songbird”. Larks are passerine birds of the family Alaudidae. All species occur in the Old World, and in northern and eastern Australia. Only one, the horned lark, is also found in North America. Habitats vary widely, but many species live in dry regions.
