How do you pronounce the first name "Lawren"? Is it ,
or  ?
I can not find the pronunciation for this name in the dictionary and the Internet. So hope you could have a look for me, thanks in advance!
(I am learning American English)
Thanks for looking at my question!
Well, I am sure it is "Lawren", not "Lauren" or "Loren", and these two names you suggested I can find them in the dictionay, which are both pronounced as /lɒrən/.
I saw "Lawren" at my TOEFL listening script, the full name is Lawren Harris, who is a Canadian painter.( Lawren Harris - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )
But I can not find the pronunciation for this name anywhere. I just heard "Lawren" which is pronounced like /lɒrən/, and also like /lɒren/. I am not sure which one is correct. Okay, I will upload a MP3 file, you can take a "listening".
I guess I will go for /lɒrən/.
This is the part of the full script:
A.Y.Jackson was influential for his ananlysis of light and shadow. Arthur Lismer's work has an intensity all its own - particularly his painting of the "Canadian Jungle," the violently colored forest in the fall. Lawren Harris went further than the rest in simplifying the forms of nature into sculptural shapes, organizing an entire scene into a single, unified image, and eventually into abstraction.
