The Lampasas River was given its name by early Spanish explorers who were in the region in the early 1700's. Some believe the name was derived from a mission named Lampazos in Mexico, while others suggest that it came from the Spanish name used for the water lilies or cockleburs found in the vicinity. When it was officially created in 1856, the county was named for the river flowing through it, and soon thereafter, the community originally called Burleson, took the name Lampasas.
