I find the meaning of my name quite disappointing. I thought it meant something more meaningful/significant. I don't quite understand the meaning to be honest.

I love my name and it is amazing, but sometimes people think I'm called Nora, Lauren, Aurora and other names! It's pretty rare though. I like that my name is international and it is in lots of languages.

I was named after my paternal grandmother who died when my father was only 15. I didn't like it as a child. It was like no one elses my age. They called me by my first and middle names until I reached 7th grade. The two names were Laura Lee. I dropped the Lee when I went to high school and not many people knew me. One thing that I really like about the name is that it really has no nickname. It seems that I have kind of grown into the name. Now that I am older, the name has become more popular. I do not like that. My mother told me that she thought I would have a name of my own. I thought that also. As more TV shows with Lauras in them come about, the name becomes more common. Anyway it is a lot better than many of my friends' names. Now I think that it fits me. I like my initials also. They are LLL. I use a lot of monograms and have a vanity plate for my car with just the three letters. I think it has worked out well for me as I have aged. My mom and dad were right after all-- as usual. My grandmother's name was Laura Elizabeth, and I always thought that it was more dignified than mine. My father did not like Elizabeth because he said people would call me Lizzie. My mother says that if she had it all to do over again today, she would choose Laura Lizabeth. That is more like Elizabeth but still gives the LLL initials that I like. Now I like Laura for a name, and I think that it fits me. I wouldn't change it now for the world.
