Where did the name Laravel come from?

In Narnia, Cair Paravel is the name of the castle where the kings and queens of Narnia live. Laravel rhymes with Paravel. I thought the name had a classy and sophisticated ring to it. Taylor Otwell

Taylor sharing how the name Laravel came about. Before this apparently it was named Bootplant.

Good change if you ask me :-)

Another fun fact I named my little blog app Wardrobe after finding this out and wanting to do something around the Narnia theme.
