ORIGIN AND HISTORY

Laurent is a French name which stems from Latin roots referring to 'Laurentum' in Italy. The French meaning of the name is that the bearer of the name is someone who comes from the place with all the laurel trees. In English, the name Laurent became Lawrence or got shortened to Larry or Lori. The feminine version of the name Laurent (since many originally French names had a male and a female version) is Laurence.

POPULARITY

Laurent is a decidedly unpopular name in the US, never having made it onto the top 1000 list of baby boys' names. In Belgium, on the other hand, the name Laurent was 252nd in 2002. In Australia it is slightly less popular than in Belgium, but still much more popular than it is in the US. In Australia, the name Laurent was the 533rd most popular given name for boys in 1999.[1]
