Laurence has long been established as both a given name and surname, along with it’s more common spelling of Lawrence. It has a very classic, British air to it, and can be shortened to the posh nickname of Ren. Coincidentally, this name has a French feminine form and would be a trendy alternative to Lauren, if you’re so inclined.
