  1. I have always loved the name Lorelei. It’s pretty, strong, and unique. It fits our first daughter perfectly. The name actually means a siren who lures sailors to their deaths. The meaning is rather dark, so I like to think of the meaning as more of a girl who is strong and brave. I also like to think of the meaning more as a mermaid than a siren. We don’t like “Lori” for a nickname so we call Lorelei “Louie,” “Lucy,” and “Lulu” for short.
