  • "I was born in 68. I hated my name when I was young as it was never on any personalised purses etc. I couldn?t get my name on anything. There were 4 of us when I was a high school out of about 1500 pupils. Now I?m 52 and I don?t mind it, it?s better than Margaret or Agnes which some a similar age to me were named" Jun. 14, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am 76 1/2 years old and my name is - LORNA DOONE! My Grandmother was Scottish and this was her name also. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my name! I have heard of other people with the first name of LORNA ..... but never read of another person with the name - LORNA DOONE! I i on sly had one person insist" May. 15, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Lorna and I love it. Born in 1994. I have only met 3 other Lornas, and none of which until after I was out of school. Most were quite older than me (given its most popular year) But I will never forget the day I met someone my same age with the name. I was stunned. Thought she was joking. Like I was the only one. Us Lorna's are lucky. People mess it up sometimes but I also get lots of compliments. My name makes me feel strong but soft and most definitely quirky." Nov. 6, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Lorna, when I was in elementary School my classmates called me Lori until I got in Middle School, then they started calling me by my birth name Lorna. I love my name Lorna because if someone calls out "Lorna' I know it is me they are calling out to. I'm happy not to have a popular name." Feb. 10, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm Lorna with a second name Jane. I've always liked my name and I'm always surprised when I meet anyone with my name as it's not at all common. I was born in 1958 so at its height of popularity. When I was due to be born my grandparents took my older sister by 8 years on holiday to Exmoor to Lorna Doone country and I've always assumed that was why my name was chosen" Nov. 4, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am Welsh and a Lorna :) I was born in 1982 and my Mum liked the name. I Love it, nice to have an original name that isn't that popular these days. I do also have difficulty with people getting it wrong. Laura, Iona, Mona . . . This has just made me more insistent that they get it right and that I know the correct pronunciations of other peoples names." Jun. 19, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Lorna, and i love it and i get allot of compliments,although most are from adults. i was born in 1999 so not many people have my name, and i still have never met another Lorna in my life." Jan. 29, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "LOVE this name! It has a soft, dreamy quality to it but still sounds strong. If I have a daughter, she'll definitely be a Lorna." Apr. 4, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I have a friend called Lorna and she is a petite, very attractive, self contained, self composed and knowledgable woman, I think the name Lorna suits her. we live in the Canary islands and the local people here call her Luna, which I feel is appropriate as she is a capricornian and people in capricorn are very stable and down to earth. Both her names Lorna and Luna to me have a hint of the spiritual and she certainly continually receives experiances from the other side, especially from her late husband who died very suddenly two summers ago, leaving Lorna and his two daughters only after 3.5 years of marriage. Their daughters were only 10 months and just turned 2 years old at the time. Lorna is a beautiful name and all names ending in "a" have a more gentle sound to then. I'm sorry for the person who dropped hers for the name Lynn, which is Anglo-Saxon for Cascade. Lorna name created by RD Blackmore for his novel Lorna Doone, suggests feminine for Lorne, but is strongly related to the Gaellic place name of Lathairn/Latharna in Argull, pronounced LA-ur-na and possibly means fox" Nov. 18, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "my names lorna and i like it beacuse not very many people are called lorna. people tend to spell it wrong and always end up calling me laura" Jun. 10, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "This is my name I didn't like it growing up but as I have gotten older I like it being different. I also have been compared to Lorna Doone and that was flustrating when I was young, and I can't ever find anything with my name on it. I was born in 1957 growing up there was only one other person in my home town with my name. She was born in the late 60's. And my mom also just like the name she wanted something different for me."
