Lawrence is, like the name Olivia, derived from the laurel tree, and can either mean "symbol of peace" or "laurel bearer".

Lawrence is a nice name, but I prefer (love) the spelling Laurence.

The lead singer of the '80s English band Felt is called Lawrence. He never uses any other name in production credits, though his surname is Hayward. Because of this, this name always reminds me very strongly of him.

It reminds me of lawyers, which is not a bad assosciation.

I like the name Lawrence... but hate the nickname Larry. Lawrence is a nice name. A nickname would not do it justice.

Nobody mentioned friar Lawrence from Romeo and Juliet?

It would be interesting to know if the Lawrence family got our coat of arms before or, after St. George.
