Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
This name was ruined for those of us in generation x that grew up watching Three's Company, with the sleazy character Larry, as well as the popular early video game, Leisure Suit Larry. It turned into a joke. It’s my name but I haven’t used it in years.

I’m a girl and my name is Lawrence. At first I didn’t like my name because everyone always mistook me for a boy. I have a feminine middle name though. I’m Lawrence Julia! Julia is my grandmother’s first name. My mom loves boy names on girls, but only as first names and not for middle names, and she would treat girls more like girly girls with boyish names as I was a girly princess at age 1. Boy names on girls that are unique for girls should only be used for girls when paired with a trendy girl's name like Sophia. I love my name now, because it’s uncommon for a girl and I like how my middle name is a trendy girl’s name. I’ve only met boys with my name, no girls! Well to be honest, Lawrence is not suitable for a boy at all! It’s so pretty and girly. Girls must stick together! I don’t even like when boys are named Michael as it’s so unique for a girl, though I would hate to see a boy named Sophia as it’s actually not unique for a boy. I don’t know any name that I like for a boy since boys suck and girls rule! I hope I have a girl! I want to name her Mason Ava:)

I never did like this name. As a first name, it's too old fashioned. As a last name, it's too common.

My name is Lawrence and as you can read by my name I'm Lawrence, but a girl which is true and I'm proud of having that name.

Lawrence Kiyoshi Shinoda was a noted American automotive designer who was best known for his work on the Chevrolet Corvette and Ford Mustang. He was born in Los Angeles, California to parents who were both Japanese immigrants: Kiyoshi Shinoda arrived in the US when he was 12, and Hide Watanabe when she was 1. Larry had a sister, Grace, that was six years older than him, who was also artistically inclined. He grew up in Southern California where he started developing his artistic talents in grade school. Kiyoshi died when Larry was 12. He was interned with his sister, mother, uncle, two aunts and a grandmother by the U.S. government during WW II under U.S. Executive Order 9066 into a "War Relocation Camp" at Manzanar, California.

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

Nobody mentioned friar Lawrence from Romeo and Juliet?

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

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

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.

I've always pronounced it LAW-rents. Never heard of LO-rents. [noted -ed]

I think Lawrence is a strong, masculine name.

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