Comments and insights on the name Lauryn: | Edit

I really like the name Lauryn spelt this way. I don't know why, it just appeals to me. Lauren is good as well but the -uren ending looks awkward.

I named my second daughter Lauryn. She's your typical girl obsessed with princesses and Frozen.

Personal experiences with the name Lauryn: | Edit

My name is Lauryn. People find the alternative spelling unique and people usually compliment my name. I was named after Lauryn Hill

My name's Lauryn and I love how it's different to all the Lauren's in my school. My parents named me after the Laurel Wreath handed out as a prize at the old Olympics as I was born when the Olympics was on. Even though my name is frequently spelt wrong by people that don't know me, I still love my name and wouldn't change it.
