My name is Lauren, which is a variant on the Latin Laurel, a symbol of honor and victory. Being Jewish, it's customary to name your children after relatives who have passed on, usually using their initials. I was named after my mom's grandmother Lillian, I'm not sure why they chose Lauren. I didn't like it as a kid (went by Laurie until I was 13), but I like it now. In recent years it's become a really popular name, which drives me nuts in the market with all the mom's yelling "LAUREN! DON'T TOUCH THAT!"Nov 12, 2010 06:04 by saxchik
