    I love it but I much prefer the spelling of Laurie to Lawry. Just like in Little Women!

    I like Lawrence, but really don’t like Lawry. I’m not even sure how that’s pronounced…. like Law-ree or like Laurie?

    Ren could be a nice nickname too but that’s getting farther away.

    I don’t really love Lawrence but I don’t strongly dislike it either. I really don’t like Lawry as a nickname though. The short for Lawrence in my area is Larry which I don’t like either.

    Hate the nickname (in any spelling, but especially that one).  Every one I’ve ever known has gone by Larry or Lars.  Don’t especially love Larry either.  

    Neutral about the proper name.  As a middle name it is ok.  I vastly prefer just using the name as a whole vs. Any of the nickname options for this particular name.

    I actually think the nickname is adorable. Go for it if you like it! WAY better than Larry, which is the nickname I’ve heard for it.

    I like it! Personally, I would change the spelling if you want him to go by Laurie. Lawry just looks wrong and add confusion.

    I don’t mind the name Lawrence but I’m not too keen on that nickname.

    ExpectingBee :  Laurie’s better, but where I am in the US, it’s definitey more of a girl name. I haven’t met any male Laurie’s.

    I’m kind of neutral about it, don’t hate it but don’t love it either.

    I agree with PP that Laurie is a girls’ name in my neck of the woods (Northeastern US). Larry gives me an image of a man in his fifties who either paints houses or is a mechanic. I actually prefer the full name Lawrence but it seems like a big name for a little boy! If you want to keep it in the family, using Lawrence as a middle name would be a nice way to keep the legacy.

    I’m meh on Lawrence and I hate Lawry for a boy no matter how you spell it.

    I like Laurie because of Little Women! Not a fan of the spelling “Lawry” though – I feel like people are going to be confused about how to pronounce that.
