- Comments and insights on the name Lorene
My middle name is also Lorene. My Mother was determined to name at least one child after her side of the family. I am named after my Aunt Rene, short of course, for Lorene. However, when the hospital registered my name they misspelled it. My birth certificate reads, Lorrene.
It's a very pretty name.
- Personal experiences with the name Lorene
My great grandfather made a mistake on my grandmother's birth certificate. She should have been Norma Loraine. She ended up being Norma Lorene. She named her oldest daughter, Donna Lorene. I am Donna's oldest daughter, Linda Lorene. My oldest daughter, born in 2009, is Abigail Lorene. A 4 generation name that began as a huge mistake. I think it was a good mistake. I love how it looks written down.
I love how I have only met one or 2 Lorenes before! How cool is that?!
