Meaning:laurel or sweet bay tree; symbol of victory
This fresh, gender-neutral name is so much more than a nickname. Laurie, which has Latin origins, refers to the laurel or sweet bay tree and means "symbol of victory." In Ancient Greece and Rome, laurel wreaths were seen as a symbol of triumph and used to signify the nobility. Laurie packs all of this historical weight in a sweeter sound, thanks to the always adorable -ie suffix. It's related to the names Laura and Lauren, as well as Laurence, as seen in Little Women, and can also be spelled Lori. This variation offers a more modern feel if the old-fashioned taste of Laurie isn't quite right.
