Laura Cruz was the first name for the heroine of the Tomb Raider games, picked by Guy Miller. It was first changed to Lara due to Americans not being able to pronounce Laura, and Cruz was later replaced with British name Croft, which was picked out of the phone book. Change in the backstory changed the character into the Lara Croft we now know.

Little about the character was revealed in "10 Years of Tomb Raider a Gametap Retrospective" bonus video that was included in the collectors edition of Tomb Raider: Anniversary.[1]
