Elegant and Sophisticated
My parents always wanted unique names for their children. They didn't want our name to be common and they wanted us to stand out and shine bright in our lifetimes. When they first chose Lauren as an option, they looked at the percentage of how many girls had the name. They were satisfied with the "uniqueness" and then researched what the name meant. Since the name meant the place of laurel leaves, they weren't that psyched about the meaning. Eventually though, the sound of my name won my parents over. They believed that Lauren sounded elegant and sophisticated. Thus, they named me Lauren! As for my opinion of my name, I think it really suits my personality! Although many girls have the same name as me, I believe that what I've been called has shaped me into who I am today!
