It is very rare that I go somewhere, tell them my name and they know how to spell it.

For as long as I can remember I have been correcting people on how to say and spell my name. 

Growing up in a small town, I was teased because of my name. I was the only Lauren around.

Some of my friends had a dad or an uncle named Lorne so everyone told me I had a "boys" name.

I don't get those comments anymore since the name Lauren did become a bit more popular for girls about a decade after I was born but people still have problems spelling it.

Do you have a name that no one can ever say or spell properly?

Send me a message or post to our Facebook page.
