"My name is Lakin Carol. Im 21 and my mother got my name from the soap opera, Santa Barbra. 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. I love my name because of its uniqueness." May. 11, 2013:

I thank my soap opera obsessed grandmother for watching the same show that so many people with my name are connected. Again I love my name so much because it fits my eccentric taste of style and life in general. I wouldn't change it for the world and to notice that so many people share my name is a blessing.I really thought I was like the only Laken in the world. When people first hear my name they think that Im either a boy, or of a non-American nationality but when they see the face behind the name they connect it in being beautiful or unique.

"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. Also, very unique, it runs in the family:)" Jan. 15, 2009:
