The Origins of our Name

The name Leara is inspired by the Icelandic word læra, meaning both to learn and to teach.

We feel that this name communicates our belief that learning and teaching are two sides of the same coin. The Leara logo is a stylized fusion of quotation marks and Icelandic horns. The combination symbolizes literacy while referencing the cultural origin of the word læra.
