Gender: M Meaning of Soren: "stern" Origin of Soren: Danish and Norwegian variation of Severus Soren's Popularity in 2015: #577

This gentle Danish name, soft and sensitive, still has more masculine punch than the dated Loren. It's most closely identified with the nineteenth century philosopher Soren Kierkegaard, but there have been modern fictional Sorens as well, in The Matrix Reloaded and the book series Guardians of Ga'Hook, Charlie and Lola, and Underworld.

In Scandinavia this name would be spelled as Sören or Søren, leading to it being pronounced "Sur-en". But with a plain old English "O", "Sorr-en" would actually be the correct (and more English-speaker friendly) pronunciation.
