Last name origin & meaning:
- Indian (northern states) : Hindu name (Bania, Kayasth), from Hindi lālā, a term of respect, used especially for members of Vaisya and Kayasth communities; typically bankers, merchants, tradesmen, schoolmasters, and clerks. It is probably related to Lal.
- Southern Italian : from modern Greek Lalas; the frequency of the name in the parochial records of Piana degli Albanesi leads Caracausi to suggest it may have been taken to Italy by Albanian settlers.
