Last name origin & meaning:

Indian (northern states): Hindu name found in several communities, meaning ‘darling’, from Sanskrit lāla ‘cajoling’ (related to Sanskrit lālana ‘caressing’). In several modern Indian languages lāl is a term of endearment for a child; it is also an epithet of the god Krishna. There is also a homonymous word lāl in Hindi, from Persian meaning ‘ruby’, ‘red’, which may have increased the popularity of this name. It occurs more commonly as the final element of a compound personal name, as in Brajlal (Braj being the name of the place where the god Krishna is supposed to have lived as a child) and Motilal (Hindi motī ‘pearl’).
