this was the maiden name of Beru Lars. Beru was a native of Mos Eisley, and had no dreams of ever leaving Tatooine. She fell in love with Owen Lars, and was able to hold her own as a verbal sparring partner with Owen's father, Cliegg. She also got along well with Cliegg's second wife, Shmi Skywalker Lars. Some years after Shmi's death, Owen and Beru were married. Note that the Star Wars Screen Entertainment computer programming originally provided Beru's maiden name as Weth.
