I love this name but then again I bear it. As a French female living in the USA, I encounter many difficulties with this name:
1) it is very difficult for English-speaking people to pronounce it correctly, 2) always asking if I use Laurie or Laura, 3) always doing a double take as to my gender and 4) the most problematic: convincing telephone bankers that I truly am who I am because they believe I should sound male - therefore needing to go through extensive security checks.
I still love this name and no I do not use a nickname.

The name Laurence is really dated on women in France. It was extremely popular in the 60's, but died down after the 70's.
