"I love my name it suits me perfectly. Funny how me and my sisters all our names end in th "ee" Lori, Chrissy, Suzy... It's NOT Laurie.. ich, thats a Laura, totally different sound! And different kind of person. All the Lori's I have met and that is 3 in my life..that spell it this way, are Gem's! We almost sparkle with great smiles, always shine with happiness, and share it with all we can. ;o)" May. 6, 2011:

"I love my name Lori! I went to school and I was the only Lori I ever knew from pre-school to my senior year. Even now I don't come across it much.

"I used to hate my name, now I LOVE it! I also should point out that I'm a guy named Lori. Thats why I used to hate it so much. Only rarely did I get teased by anyone while growing up as some people may believe would happen. My parents were expecting a girl, so my mom picked both a first and middle name out - which is also a girls name. By the time I was born, my mom was already set on both names and didn't see any reason to change them. And honestly? I'm really glad she didn't." Dec. 1, 2008:

"I love it, my eldest daughter is called Lori, it fits with the first two letters of mine and my wifes name, but we realised that after choosing it. it suits her, its individual and unique in England anyway" Mar. 9, 2007:
"I LOVE my name and the spelling. To me, it's cute yet strong and very different. It wasn't until after high school that I met other women with the same name AND spelling. I met a few people named Laura or Laurie, but not Lori. Actually, when I was younger, I was suprised and thrilled to learn other people had my name. Though more people seem to share my name, it's still not as common. Awesome!" Nov. 22, 2005:

"Lori is ok, but I wish my parents would have had the foresight to consider that their daughter may want a name with some dignity for the future. ( I was born in 1971) I'm not into 'cute', and Lori (Ann) is just... A little too cute for my taste." Feb. 8, 2015:
"My name is Lori and people always spell it wrong,(E.g Lorry, Laurie, Lorie) as well as pronouncing it wrong. It is Lori, as in "Sorry" but with an "L" Like a Lorry that drives on the road. I rarely come across another person called Lori, but I don't really mind that, as I imagine knowing someone with the same name could be quite confusing." Aug. 20, 2014:
"I am a "Lori" and Its ok i guess, all of my mom's kids have "L" names so it just stuck when I was born, I mean my mom couldn't call me hey you till I told her want I wanted my name to be. I think its funny knowing that a lorry is also a truck in England. If people don't like their names, you can always pay money to change I suppose. I am an artist, so I like it being a short name." Oct. 1, 2013:
"My name is Lori. I hate it. I think It kinda sounds weird so i pronounce it 'Lorry' .. And Spell It 'Lorii' Just to be different. I only know one other Lori and she was named after me like. so yeah.. i suppose its not that common in Ireland but still.... I wish i was called something normal like Jayden or something.." Dec. 23, 2010:

"This is how my friend's mom spells her name and I love it! the only problem is people pronouncing it "Laurie" and yes! there is a difference in the pronunciation." Feb. 18, 2007:
"I was in a class once, where I "Lori", one of my best friends, "Lori" and two "Laura's" were. It was hilarious to see the teacher try to cope with that! What I have found to be relatively true, is "Laurie" is an East Coast or over 60+/- spelling, and "Lori" is a West Coast or under 50+/- thing. I do like my name, though when combined with all my other maiden names, was way too short!" Jan. 5, 2007:
