    Are they cute or what? wow! 🙂   I would probably choose to hypenate in this situation and I’m sure everyone would understand why. haha!

    I think I’d also hyphenate in this instance too…not to mention, isn’t the last name Lauren pronounced differently than the first name Lauren?

    Ha, I kind of like it in a weird way. It’s easy to remember, at least! I’d do it if I was known by a nickname, so there’d be some distinction, like with Jim James, or Kris Kristofferson…

    I think this will start to happen more often now with the latest baby-name trend of using last names as first names.

    It’s the Seinfeld pirate blouse!

    Couldn’t she go by Lauren Squared? Lauren^2 is a very cool way to write your name.

    That is too funny!  I wouldn’t change my name regardless, but I do have a friend whose grandfather had the same first and last name.  His name was Frank* Longpolishlastname and at Ellis Island they decided not to bother dealing with the last name and Americanized his name to Frank Frank.

    (*Frank is not my friend’s real last name)
