The radix of the name are actually just in the main road of the town, via Labiena. Titus Labienus is considered responsible for naming Mombello too, after a battle against the Gauls . A different interpretation says that the meaning is "monte bello", that is "beautiful hill".In the 19th century, Laveno Mombello was home to important ceramic industries.
