I have four children, all with unusual names. Our second to the eldest son's name is Soren. We are continually told how awesome the name is. We have several friends who have named their sons Soren also. It is a strong, intellectual sounding name. We love the name!
I have a little brother named Soren.Once when I told my teacher his name he said "His name is Soren. What does is mean? I love that name. That's a really cool name." I then said " I heard that it means 'Lord of War'". I've never met someone with the same name, well except for my brother. He loves his name.
My daughters name is Soren. She is third generation Danish, with some Norwegian. Shhh don't tell. It's used about every other generation in my husbands side. Nickname: Ren(Wren) I was told it came from Thor-Thoren-Soren and means, "God of War." Trust me when I say it fits my sweet love.
