I’ve recently liked the thought of laureate as a name- it has great symbolism, and is classic and recognizable yet highly unique. The one problem is I hate the idea of anything like [name_u]Laurie[/name_u] / [name_u]Lorrie[/name_u] for a nickname.
Any ideas for good nicknames that don’t sound like lorrie?
My initial thought was [name_u]Rory[/name_u]!
Rory is a great suggestion!
Maybe [name_f]Lettie[/name_f], [name_f]Lottie[/name_f], [name_f]Retta[/name_f]?
And I say “laureate” with the first syllable more like “lahr” (instead of “lore”), so perhaps [name_m]Lars[/name_m] or [name_u]Ari[/name_u]? If you pronounce it more like “lore,” then perhaps [name_f]Tori[/name_f]?
Rory is a great idea! Thanks for that!
Thanks for pointing that out, I even like the idea of just [name_f]Lore[/name_f]
I like [name_m]Law[/name_m]!
