Apparently I say it wrong or something, so I'm just wondering.

I say it like Lor-in.

But hey, maybe I say it wrong. People down here always say I have an accent being from NY, as if they don't have an accent being from TX haha.

I can go either way with Lar-in or Lor-in, depending on how the person prefers.

I guess I do say it wrong! I've always said LAWR-en, but everyone around here says Lor-in. The only people I know who automatically say it my way are from Dallas, TX.

Lore-in, that's how they said it on a tv show where one of the daughters had the name.

Yeah I say it Laur-en, as in Car, Far, Bar. It's a strong ARE sound when we say it (and I think I'm the Dallas-ite Kes is mentioning. I think I have a recording of how I say it somewhere).

I'm a Lauren by the way, so I spend a ton of time explaining how we prn it here.
