The name is derived from the French name Laurence, which is a feminine version of Laurent, and is in turn derived from the Roman surname Laurentius. The name has several meanings, including "laurel tree," "sweet of honor," and "wisdom". The laurel plant, which is a symbol of victory in ancient Greece, signifies wisdom, and the term "laureate" is used to refer to someone who has achieved something significant. The name Lauren has a rich history and has been associated with various notable people, including British-French singer and record producer Lauren Bacall, American actress Lauren Bacall (1924–2014), and American journalist Lauren Brooke Baldwin.
