I like it and I really like Laurie. I do prefer the Lawrence spelling but I totally understand MrsvWoolf thinking it too surnamey compared to Laurence - I usually feel the same way about names but I imagine Lawrence as a more handsome guy than Laurence!
I realise this is an old thread but I am seriously considering Laurie for my ds due in July. Would prefer just Laurie rather than Laurence but wondering.. how would most of you pronounce Laurie.. law -rie or Lorrie?? I think I would say Lorrie if seen written down and seems to me the male version where as Law-rie could be female?
