My name is Lauren and I'm not sure what to think of it. I don't think It's the best name in the world but It's definitely not the worst

My name is Lauren and I am a male. It is a rare name and it can be quite fun although sometimes you are generalized as a female which I had a funny story with. I booked a hotel room via the internet and realizing that if I wanted to go swI'ming I would need some swimwear so I wrote an email to the hotel and kindly asked them if they could buy something for me and bill me. Sure it was ok so I passed them my size and stated that I didn't want any bikini style, meaning those really tight swI'ming trunks that are getting more popular these days. When I finally arrived to check in and pay my bill for the'swimwear I noticed that my name had made them do a funny mistake. They had purchased a one piece swimsuit instead of trunks, I did keep the'suit though as a funny memory as it is the first time something like that happened. I just ended up laughing as they had done an honorable mistake and because I didn't state that I was a male.

Hey Melissa! My name is Lauren Ashley. That's so weird that you are thinking of naming your baby that! My mom named my sister Hanna Grace, which is also strange that you would choose Lauren Grace. I love my name and everyone is always so surprised to hear that Ashley is my middle name since it's commonly used as a first name. But, what I like most about my name is that Lauren Ashley writes beautifully in cursive. Good luck!
