Lara Craft was one of the original name ideas for Lara Croft.
They ditched it, according to the bonus material on the 2001 movie, because it sounded terrible when Americans pronounced it (Law-ra vs. Lah-rah), though it sounded perfect in a British accent.
I suppose I have the advantage of a terribly, horribly un-classy, un-exotic accent, so I come up with generally good names to balance it out, I think. But I’ve never really tested them to see if they held up.
Maybe I have some accents to horribly butcher in the pursuit of science. How about you?
