For the second time within the last year, the group behind Laurel Road Bank is seeking to change the bank’s name.

The company has submitted an application to the Connecticut Department of Banking to change its name from Laurel Road Bank to DR Bank. Last April, the bank changed its name from Darien Rowayton Bank to Laurel Road Bank.

The move comes after Laurel Road sold its online lending business to the parent company of Cleveland-based KeyBank for an undisclosed sum. As part of the deal, approximately 140 of Laurel Road’s 185 employees will join KeyBank.

But the deal did not include Laurel Road’s three bank branches located in Darien, Rowayton and Fairfield, raising questions about how Laurel Road would continue its business.

When the bank changed its name to Laurel Road Bank, the rebrand was intended to better emphasize the national online lending platform, which included more than $4 billion in loan originations and an end-to-end consumer lending platform that offers a streamlined, transparent experience with customized loan products.
