nn for Lauren?

DH loves the name Lauren.  I don't hate it.  What are some good nns?  WDYT of the name?  I like names like Adair and Harper, but DH prefers those for mns. 

Re: nn for Lauren?

  • Elyse?  Any family names?

    My poor sister is Lauren Howard (after my dad's father)...don't know what my parents were thinking there. Stick out tongue

    ETA: I just realized you asked for nicknames, NOT middle names...my bad.  Smile

  • Laur? (pronounced Lore)

    Renny?

    I don't think Lauren really needs a nn, every Lauren I've ever known has just gone by Lauren.

  • This is one name that doesn't need a nn. My friend Lauren goes by Lauren, occasionally we say "Lore" when being lazy.

    nn do not have to stem froma name. Dillon has about 2 nn at this point, none that have anything to do with his name. I am not sure one will stick for when he is older, but you never know.

    A lot of years and a million tears finally led me to you.
    After 7 years trying to concieve, 3 failed IUIs and 2 failed IVFs, my third IVF was a success!
    My Christmas baby turned into a turkey bird! Dillon Richard was born at 34 weeks, 5 days on November 28, 2009 after 10 weeks on bedrest for preeclampsia.

  • Lauren is a nice name. 

    Possible nicknames: Lori, Ren, Lola, Renny, LaLa, Lo

  • The only Lauren nickname I know is from a friend growing up. Her middle name was a J (Jean, I think) and her nickname was LJ.

  • My friend Lauren goes by Lauren or Lar (as in Lars without the s).

  • <---Lauren

     About 90% of the time, people just say Lauren... but growing up, my most common nn was Lolo.  Now it's just Lo or Laur.   I have a good friend that's a Lauren, and her nn growing up was Lulu.   Barring some serious creativity, that's probably about it.

    Renny?   Dear god no.

  • I'm a Lauren. Most say Lauren but close friends and family have always called me either Lau or Laur. FYI, I actually really like my name...never had any issue with it at all!
  • We always called my friend Lauren Laur, but I think Lo is really cute

    One of my dearest friends is named Lauren and her NN is Lorna. I love it and think it totally suits her.

  • I know several Laurens and not one has a nn, which isn't a bad thing.  It is such a pretty name and much nicer than Adair and Harper...
  • I'm also a Lauren and people called me Laur growing up, or just Lauren.

    My DF calls me Lulu and it's caught on to most of my family now, lol.

  • My friend is Lauren, and she just goes by Lauren.  For the record, she hates when ppl pronounce her name Lor-en...so for her, the nn's Lore and Lori would be totally out, because that's not how her name is pronounced.  She is pretty firm about pronouncing it Law-ren.

  • Lauren is my little sister's name (she's 8; I'm 30, so yes, big age difference).  Anyway, we all call her Laurie Belle.  I love it.  It really suites her.  As she grows up, she can just go by Lauren, but for now, we love calling her Laurie Belle.  
  • I don't thnk Lauren needs a nn, but I know 2 Lauren's who have gone by Lo or Lolo.

  • I'm a Lauren and the only nn I have is from my sister who sometimes calls me "Laur" (like Lor). I like not having a nn.

  • Someone mentioned "Lulu." I forgot that my aunt calls me that, but she's the only person who calls me that.

    I'm a Lauren and I cringe every time I hear my name pronounced as "Lor-en." Maybe that's how other Laurens pronounce their name but it doesn't work for me.  I actually pronounced my name more like "Lahrr-en."

    ETA: I've never had a nickname. I don't think many nicknames come naturally for the name Lauren. When I was younger than kind of bugged me as I thought having one would of been neat. Now, of course, I couldn't care less.
