LaToya Name Meaning & Origin

LaToya

Pronunciation: lah-TOY-ə (key)

This name is generally attributed to LaToya Jackson, who was born in 1956. Her name hit the spotlight in the '70s when her Jackson 5 brothers became singing sensations. (American Idol star LaToya London was among those born at the peak of disco fever.) It was a splashy hit but has now virtually disappeared.
