Gender: F Meaning of Lauren: "bay laurel" Origin of Lauren: English variation of Laura Lauren's Popularity in 2013: #91

Lauren -- introduced by Lauren (born Betty) Bacall in 1944 -- was in and around the Top 25 from the early eighties until 2006, when the classic Laura began to be seen as a more stylish option.

Lauren was chosen last year by over 3000 parents seeking a gentle, not-too-extreme update of a Ralph Lauren-like classic. While it's still and forever a lovely name, Lauren is becoming one more identified with contemporary moms than babies.
