it would depend on you accent, my friend has named her son Oran (same name diff spelling), and we live in Belfast NI so it's Or-an.

Is this pronounced O-ren or Orren?

I really like the simplicity yet richness of Oren, plus the O-beginning and appealing nickname Ren. Love the meaning of laurel tree, which can also symbolize victory/peace. I know an Oren and two Orrins (a variant) and I associate the name with a calm, laid-back, jovial and competent personality.
