  • "My name is Lauren. Until I arrived at college a year ago, I thought my name was fairly uncommon and was shocked whenever it was used on tv or in books. There were no other Laurens in my class from 1st-12th grade. When I arrived at college, there were a lot more, however. I like the name Lauren. It's classy, simple, elegant, pretty, yet more trendy than Laura or Laurie. It's true there aren't many nicknames (my siblings call me Laur or Lulu), but I think that's nice. There are so many people with lovely names that are never used because they're too easy to abbreviate (Jessica, Alexandra, Katherine, Samuel, Joshua, Joseph, Alexander, Thomas, Michael, Matthew, Rebecca, etc). I've always wondered if any women were called Lauren before Lauren Bacall used it as a stage name. It appears not. She was given the name "Lauren" by a director.

It's not overly girly or feminine, but it's not exactly a masculine name either. It's a nice, perfectly balanced name that is basically taunt-proof.

  • "To address the "snobby" issue: look up the Freakonomics analysis of naming trends. Lauren was one of the most popular names used in the late 80s/early 90s by the most educated, wealthiest segment of society. Whether or not I like my name: Because of the prevelence of the name, I've often been asked if, given the choice, I would have named myself other than Lauren. My answer is always "No, I love my name, but I wouldn't allow anyone else to use it." Am I happy to be named Lauren? Yes, very much so. Would I name a child Lauren today? Depends. It is ridiculously overused in the agegroup that's in college now, but I think its declining prevelence among newborns means that its use is finally leveling out. I will say that I expect the name "Lauren" to be like the name "Susan" of our parents' generation (a name that is strongly associated with a particular agegroup rather than a name like Margaret that is common in both)."
