"I mean why the bad reviews? I mean sure it's not the proper Laurence spelling but everyone loves a Larry right" Sep. 21, 2018:
"Well my father is named Lawrence as am I. Growing up with this name wasn't super fun. It made me really embarrassed to introduce myself honestly. But once I grew up and gained confidence in myself and developed all the social skills as anyone does throughout school, it was MY name. Everyone knew who I was because I was the only one. I love it now. When i say it over the phone people think im saying Ryan. Anyway, its a weird one but a good one. sounds proffesional now that i am 25, its a great way to stand out and it gives me confidence." Apr. 29, 2017:
"My son's name is Lawrence Theodore; he is named after his great-grandfathers. I love the name. We do NOT call him Larry; we dislike the name Larry. For short, we call our son LT. I am happy that we chose Lawrence, it sounds sophisticated and is not very common." Nov. 21, 2010:
