What is the true meaning of Allah?

I am a newb at Islam and Arabic, however, I have been learning Arabic and I have come across a question that can be said in Arabic:> مَنْ رَبُّكُمْ> > "Who is your God (to a bunch of guys)?" with a response of:> > رَبُّنَا الله> > "Our God is Allah".This confuses me a little bit because Muslims, and Google, all say that the only word for God in Arabic is Allah, with *al-lah* being its particles; a.k.a lah-un with a definite particle.So where has this *Rabbun* come from and is *lah-un* really the Arabic word for God or is it really meaning something else?
