Living in the South, I've met very few people with the name Laken and I've never met anyone who spells it the same way I do. (Lakin) I've got many compliments about my name, but I've also gotten some strange looks when I tell people my name. It is often mistaken for Larkin, Lincoln, or Lakelund. In school kids would always call me Lakin Bacon or Lake. Many people still call me Lake. My dad calls me LakinLuke, and most of my family calls me Baby Lake or LakeLake.

  • "My 5 year old is named Laken. I've had this name picked out since I was 16. I have had 2 other kids before her and I always tell my oldest son if he was a girl his named would have been Laken. I went to one of his school play's recently and there was a girl in his grade with the Laken. I found that to be ironic since, if he would have been a girl, there would have been 2 kids in the same school with the same rare name. Funny thing is, the mom of that girl, got her name from the same soap opera "Santa Barbara" when she was 16 that I had heard it. Small world. Everyone loves my daughter's name Laken Krystea pronounced (Kris tay ah). They say it's very unique and conversational. Her middle name is my first name.

My wife agreed with that strange name to my surprise and so we now have the sweet 12 year old Laken Mariah Quickle. this site is incredible, thank goodness for the internet.
