Amanda Says:


I named my baby Larry after his dad and grandpa, so he's a third. I didn't really love it but now I do, and don't know what else I would have named my little boy. ;)

Orchid_Lover Says:


I still think of Larry from Perfect Strangers. Or Larry King. But I love Lawrence! I think the older generation of Larrys will have to die out before this name might seem fresh again rather than dorky.

Guest Says:


This name is so dorky and weird to me.

Nooshi Says:


I really like it too. I think it could definitely work in this day and age, as an alternative to Harry and Leo.

I actually really like this name and think it would do well for a baby. I think of a baby in blue when I hear it.
