That is too precious! I absolutely love the idea of siblings having a say in their little siblings' names. If the name is way out there, then it makes sense not to do it. But if you all like the name a lot and it feels right when she's born, why not? It only makes it more special that her brother named her (sort of unintentionally, but still), not less special. Lauren is not nearly as popular as it used to be. I would be pleasantly surprised to meet a baby Lauren. I also like the suggestion of Laurel, which is beautiful and less common and still inspired by your son.
I would be careful of the spelling, though. I knew a boy named Loren in high school, so if you're going with Lauren, I'd spell it that way. I'm not a fan of ys subbing in for other letters, but Lauryn at least still looks and feels like a girl's name. Just a thought. Also, I like the idea of the name Linden and the unusualness of it, but if I heard a sibset of Lyrik, Ledger, and Linden, I would be 100% sure they were all boys ... just something to think about.
Good luck! Thank you for sharing this sweet story! :)
Way too common for my taste but if you like it and don't have any other names I guess it's fine
Lotus (also Lotis), Linden, Lux, Lachlan, and Lark are some of my favorite L names for girls
I think it's adorable and that it might be cool to incorporate Lauren in the name somehow, but definitely wouldn't let it dictate the actual name. There's been some pretty great suggestions already but I'll throw in Lorien.
I think Laurel would be a lovely choice for you!
If I didn't like it, no. I wouldn't use it. Because as adorable as the story is, I still would want to LOVE the name of all of my children. I think Lauren would make a lovely MN, though, and you could pick a FN you really love. I think similar names like Laurel, Lorelei, Laura, and Elora are lovely, though, and would work well with Lyrik and Ledger.
What a nice story! :)
I vote for Lauren, Lauryn, or Laurel.
I think its a sweet idea, but Lauren seems a little common after Ledger & Lyric, but if you decide on Lauren, you could always come up with an uncommon/fun nickname for her. I know a Lauren called Lala.
Other examples I came up with:
Lula or Lulu
Or something with her middle name like Lauren Indiana and call her Indie.
Just an idea. Good luck.
I would use Lauren or as others suggested Laurel. I think it's ok that it's a little different than her brothers because she's a girl. The story is precious, and to be honest I like Laurel. It has a sweet earthiness to it. It's gentle. It reminds me of swinging on a porch or a swing slowly and enjoying the last of a warm summer day.
I would prefer Laurel to Lauren for a girl.
But if you are so blessed with another son, then maybe your child was refering to a baby Loren. A male Loren.
I love Loren.
I would name my child something my 1st born came up with, if I love it. I wouldn't want to have naming remorse and then subcounciously blame my first born.
I'm with @maggiefromcanada, @characternamer and @ashthedreamer.
I'd probably try to stick with something that has a nn that could also be a nn for Lauren. Obviously (see signature) I adore Lorelei and Loretta. If Lauren is too common for your tastes I would find something else - it does sound nice with your boys names but would be too common for me. Another option is to use Lauren as a mn. Something like Lumiere Lauren, Leandra Lauren, or Linnea Lauren. (Avoiding the Laur sound in the first name all together).
