  • "I like my name.?Lori?. I am from the south where you have to have two names and called by both. I am Lori Lee. Lee after my Daddy, Jimmie Lee. My daddy was named after his uncle Claude Lee... and so on. In my family it was Best to have a short name or it took to long to be called to dinner. When I am called Lori Lee, I know the person on my family tree. Just brings back memories of hot summer days, hunting for lighting bugs and sipping cold tea out of a mason jar. Oh yes , I love my name. Thanks Betty Jean and Jimmie Lee. I miss you!" Oct. 16, 2017: Report as inappropriate

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: Report as inappropriate

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: Report as inappropriate

  • "I've always hated my name. It's boring, has no option for nicknames the the only others I've met are twenty years older than me (born 1986). It's never spelled correctly and to me sounds like the name of a cheerleader or other bubbleheaded type. If I had any other option (middle name is Anne which isn't any better) I'd go by that." Mar. 9, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Lorie spelled with one e 1 r. Middle name is Ann with no e!! My dad added the e because he said it did not look finished. I know only one other person in my hometown that spells it with the e." May. 15, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "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: Report as inappropriate

  • "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: Report as inappropriate

  • "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: Report as inappropriate

  • "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 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: Report as inappropriate
