as long as it's for a boy

<you can never tell on the baby names threads>grin

Love it, I do prefer the it spelt Lawrence but makes no difference to it being a great name.

I have a Lawrence. He is 18 now. There were no other Lawrences when he was named.

He gets called Lol mostly though.

Prefer it with a W

I have a Laurence - he is always Laurie to us though!

Undercovamutha Fri 29-Jan-10 20:29:40

I love it - I always think of Little Women too!

no

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!

just no

Don't like it, don't like Larry as a nn, or Laurie. I actually prefer this as a girl's name.

If you loved Laurie in Little Women, why not just call him Laurie? But then I am biased - DS1 is Laurie, and am get comments a lot about what a lovely name it is.

CantSleepWontSleep Fri 29-Jan-10 22:22:59

It's great, except that 50% of people will spell it Lawrence, which will piss him/you off his whole life!

janeite Fri 29-Jan-10 22:29:24

It is fabbo. DD1 would have been Laurie?Laurence had she been ds. I like it better this way than the 'w' way.

Love this name - it's gorgeous. Prefer Laurence spelling as well. Love Laurie as a NN - also like Lol. You have to use this name!

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?

Laurence is a girls name imo. It is the female version of Laurent.

Just like Florence is the female version of Florent.

Laurie is very girly too and too similar to Laura imo.

I'd go for Lawrence is you must.

Our local pervert was called Uncle lol (Lollipop), but his real name was Laurence. Sorry but I cannot get past that.
