    8. You can never introduce yourself to someone without them saying, "that's my sister's name!" Why is everyone's sister named Lauren?!?!?!

    10. No one called you "Lo" growing up, but other Lauren's have the nickname "Lo" so you feel left out and lame.

    11. You fell out of touch with your 3rd grade best friend and the other 42 girls in your grade named Lauren. You hope they are doing well though.

    12. People call you Lorne Michaels to be funny, but your name isn't Lorne, so the joke is ?????

    13. Your name is six letters, not five letters, like Kevin or Carly. Five letters seems cuter.

    14. "Lauren" starts with an "L," which is basically the dead center of the alphabet, so if things are going in alphabetical order by first name, you'll always be in the middle...even if they start at the beginning or the end of the alphabet. Annoying.
