Ever wondered why there are so many more women named Lorraine than there are named Alsace? (Neither have I.)

I really like this name, I can't understand why it isn't used more. It is the name of one of my mother's friends.

I like the nickname Rainie for this name, Lorraine could be used as she got older if she wished.

My name is Lorraine. I don't think anything special about this name.

This my grandmother's name. She was named after the region in France, where her father had spent some time as a soldier in World War I. The place had left a strong impression on him. I think it's a beautiful name.

Lorraine is a beautiful elegant name. I too like the nickname Raine or Rainie.

Lorraine is my name, and I think it's really bland and boring.

It's not the worst name out there, but it sounds a bit like the name of a naive counrty girl in 1950s America.

The name is used in France. It's the only French region commonly used in France for naming people. It could be a form of Laura, but between 1870 and 1918, a part of Lorraine and all Alsace had been annexed by Germany, and the name became very popular in France, as a patriotic symbol.

It surprises me that even while Eileen and Elain are still in the top one thousand, Lorraine is virtually unknown in the schoolyard.

Lorraine was the name of Dakota Faning's character in Uptown Girls. Her nickname was Ray. I think it's a really good name.

I actually think this name is really beautiful. It doesn't have an old-ladyish quality to me, even though I think of it as being popular in the 40s or so. I prefer it to Laura or Lauren.

Popular Nat King Cole song of the early 1950's: "Sweet Lorraine". Also Col. Henry Blake's wife's name on MASH.

Lorraine was my mother's name. Her nickname was always "Lori", though we did know one little boy who always called her "Raine".

Personally, I wouldn't choose to name my daughter Lorraine (I don't think I'd be comfortable giving the names of relatives to my children, especially one so very closely related), but I would consider it for a middle name.

This is my mother's name. She usually goes by her full name, but my Dad often calls her Lolly, I don't know why, but I think it's rather cute! I'm hoping to use this as a middle name for my child someday x.
