Wdyt? Is it too Gilmore Girlish? Is there anyway of preventing the nickname Lori from happening?

Its a name I'd probably consider because I think it'd be a nice way to honour my mother since her name is Laurie.

I like it, its on my list, everyone i mention it too asks if i like gilmore girls (ive never seen a single episode) so to me its not gilmore girls but i think it is to the majority of the population, of course Gilmore girls is not nearly as popular as it once was so perhaps people will soon be forgetting about it

I've never seen the Gilmore Girls so I don't associate it with that but the name is just nms. I think people may try to call her Lori

Thanks for the opinions everyone. I agree that Gilmore Girls (which has been off the air for a few years now) is not as popular as it was and since I don't even know when I will have a baby girl the association might die out by the time she is born.

I think associations die out, so I wouldn't worry about that. I would either come up with another nn or call her by her full first name. Both of my nieces go by their full first names and they don't like them to be shortened, Celeste & Kathryn

A friend of mine has Loralai and Cecily. They call her Loralai but are okay with Laila (lyla) and Lailai (lyly) as nicknames

I like it, I think it's a pretty name.

As far as nick names go.. usually people are respectful of the parents wishes. Once you correct them a few times ("It's NOT Lori..") they'll usually stop. Unless they're my MIL who has refused to listen to me whatsoever on what my DS is supposed to be called (for 16 months now, no matter how witchy I get about it).

I think it's pretty cute (never watched gilmore girls) but I would never use the name.
