Lalvar was a village in the territory of the Borchali uezd of the former Tiflis governorate, in the former Barana (Noyemberyan) district, and present-day Tavush province. It was located 28 km to the northwest of the settlement of Barana, on the bank of the Tona (Debed) River and near the village of Lambali. Later, it was merged with the village of Lambali and abolished.

The village was named “Lalvar” because it was situated at the foot of Lalvar Mountain.

The toponym was coined by combining the words “lal” and “var” meaning “a fortified village, fortress or wall”.
