rainy F


This name is a short form of Laraine, Lorraine, Lorainne, Lorayne and Loraine. It is of Germanic origin and comes from the following roots: (*RAGINĄ) and (CHLODOCHAR). Above all this name derives from the Old High German name “Chlothar / Chlodochar”, composed of two elements: “*hlūdaz” (to hear, loud, sound, noise / famous) and “*harjaz” (army, warrior). In modern times it can also be used as a variant of “Rain”, from the Old English “regn“, which in turn derives from the Proto-Germanic “*raginą”, meaning “decision, advice, counsel”.
