Comments and insights on the name Laken: | Edit

My daughter is 11 and we named her Laikyn. It is derived from Laken but we felt this version was more feminine. She gets upset to find out her name has no meaning. I wonder why this is? It has certainly been around long enough for someone to give a meaning to it. So I would like to throw out the meaning myself. Because there seems to be some consistency about a body of water involved in this name (although no one wants there name to mean "body of water".

This is a cool name!

Water was used in the Old
Testament to symbolize cleansing and renewal. Water was used in
priestly ablutions to denote ceremonial cleansing. So how about
one who is cleansed and renewed

Water also gives life so how about
Giving one or life giving

Ancient meaning of dreaming a lake:

To dream, of a lake, means you will have good achievements in the field of negotiation and diplomacy.
so: Diplomatic or acheiver
Biblically:

when mentioned in the Word, in the spiritual sense signify intelligence from the knowledges of good and truth, for pools there mean waters gathered together, or lakes, and waters gathered together, and lakes, denote in the complex the knowledges through which is intelligence, as in Isaiah:--

so Laken/Laikyn could mean:
Intelligence from knowledge of good and truth

edit: my name is Leikin (lake-in).. I've never seen this name spelled the way mine is & that partially disappoints me. Leikin Kristine.. it sounds good but I don't like how it looks. I like Laikyn, Leikyn, Lakyn, and Laiken.. and I know about 8 GIRLS with this name. Ive never met a boy with this name but Ive seen online where people plan to name their boy Laken and I dont like that thought.. its a very girly name.. Laughlin is better for a boy & is still similar.

Kalen and Laken are anagrams of each other; they contain the same letters.

Personal experiences with the name Laken: | Edit

My daughter is named Laken. When I was a child there was a soap opera on called Santa Barbara and there was a character on it named Laken. I always said when I grew up and had a daughter that was what I was going to name her. 25 years later I had a daughter and named her Laken. I just always liked the name and never forgot it.

We just named our daughter Laken in 2010. My name is Rainy and many of the members in my family have "earthy, organic, or nature themed" names. My husband thought that Laken would be a nice name for our daughter. We call her Lake or Lakers often.
