Comments for the name Lorna


Comments for LORNA:

I have a set of rather old dictionaries and in the back they have a listing of names, masculine and feminine of course. For each name they have pronunciation, meaning, other spellings, and history/origin sometimes. Anyway, for the name Lorna, it says that it means 'Lost'.

There's a girl in my class called Lorna. It is a pretty and uncommon name but I find it kind of hard to pronounce. Also it is very similar to Laura when you say it, which puts me off the name as I don't like Laura.

It's a very beautiful name. When I picture a "Lorna" I picture a very beautiful, clear-skinned girl with flowing dark hair standing on a mountain on a stormy evening. It's very romantic and dramatic!

When you say LORNA, I think of Doom. Because of Lorna Doone. I haven't read it but I've seen the Blurb. No offense to the Lornas though.

Even though my name is Lorna. I don't like it. It isn't original. To all the people who don't like the name, I don't either so I agree. But I have to live with it. For the people who think they have an image of what a 'Lorna' looks like, everyone is different. Me? I sit on a computer, have boy-short dirty blonde hair and wear glasses. That should give you a pretty good image of a Lorna.

Lorna is such a lovely name, and I plan on using it one day. As a first name, it feels intelligent and feminine.

The name doesn't sound very pleasant, and it's hopelessly old-fashioned.

After what I've read Lorna means 'Fox', that is one of the reasons I like it, it feels is so strong.

Lorna is a lovely name and also my older sister's. It is strange how people think of a fair skinned girl with dark hair as a Lorna because that is just like my sister.

My name is also
Lorna it means "Fox"
And is of Scottish origin.

(I am British with Irish roots

I love my name dearly, as much as my American husband and friends do.

Also foxes have been my favourite animals long before I even knew my name's meaning.
Originally I was going to be called Charlotte but my aunt on my mother's side
said "Pfft! Your not calling her Charlotte"
Thus wrote my name on my birth cradle.
I found out this tale from my grandma that was present ^///^
I'm royally grateful for my aunt picking my name, and my mum did admit she liked Lorna more in the end.
