Ancient mariners and merchants who carried goods from south Greek colonies traded with the Illyrians, and when they came to Lastovo, they named the island Ladesta or Ladeston. The Romans called it Ladestris, and the Narentines, who came after the Romans, took the original Roman form Lasta and added the suffix "ovo". This is how Lastovo got its name.
