We are in Scotland btw if that makes any difference and have DD1 Sophie.

MavisEnderby Sun 12-Jun-11 20:23:17

It is a pretty name,have never viewed it as "chavvy" and even if it were if you like it go for it!

smashinghairday Sun 12-Jun-11 20:23:51

No, it's beautiful.

usualsuspect Sun 12-Jun-11 20:24:16

No

onepieceofcremeegg Sun 12-Jun-11 20:25:02

Not at all.

(ignore the Lauren character that Catherine Tate "does")

SherbetDibDab Sun 12-Jun-11 20:25:30

No but Catherine Tate ruined it with her 'Am I bovvered?' thing.

darleneoconnor Sun 12-Jun-11 20:25:39

I think in freakonomics they said it was one of the most middle class names but in the UK that Catherine Tate character maybe has made it a little chavvy, but it wouldn't look out of place on a posh child iykwim.

Maybe those 2 names together will sound like Sophia Loren, though.

no but i think you're a chav

methodsandmaterials Sun 12-Jun-11 20:26:20

No, but using the word "chavvy" is horribly tacky.

thelittlefriend Sun 12-Jun-11 20:29:48

Not at all

pilates Sun 12-Jun-11 20:38:39

no

Bandwitch Sun 12-Jun-11 20:40:49

I think it's a tiny bit 'tired'.

I agree that together it sounds like sophia loren confused

I like Laurel though. just that one letter changes freshens it up and makes me appreciate it again.

howzaboutthat Sun 12-Jun-11 20:40:56

It's a lovely name.

Not in the SLIGHTEST bit chavy.

I think it's very continental and chic.

We considered it for DD1 but went for something a bit frillier in the end.

Love it though, not chavy at all.

SloganLogan Sun 12-Jun-11 21:26:36

I like it.

sharbie Sun 12-Jun-11 21:28:10

no not chavvy

fedupofnamechanging Sun 12-Jun-11 21:39:04

I like it

LawrieMarlow Sun 12-Jun-11 21:50:50

I don't like it personally, but not due to any perceived chavviness - just not a name I like.

Jojay Sun 12-Jun-11 21:51:53

No, not chavvy.

rachel1970 Sun 12-Jun-11 22:08:35

I'm not keen on Lauren, I'm afraid. But I don't get this obsession with 'labelling' names hmm.

twinklypearls Sun 12-Jun-11 22:09:53

Do you like the name? That is all that matters.

I think using the word chav makes you beneath anyone that you would probably label a chav.

proudfoot Sun 12-Jun-11 23:45:44

No, it's not chavvy.

swanker Mon 13-Jun-11 11:09:12

I think Lauren is a perfectly nice name. Laura us too.

I like Laurel even better though.

MelinaM Mon 13-Jun-11 11:12:26

It's okay, but do agree that it's a bit 'tired', it had a moment back in the early 90's.

How about Lara? ...so chic, and goes well with Sophiesmile

GwendolineMaryLacey Mon 13-Jun-11 11:13:17

It's old hat and I don't like it. Love Laura though.

mopsyflopsy Mon 13-Jun-11 11:30:14

I'm not keen on Lauren. It sounds a bit dull/dated to me.
