Title: Is it Lawrence or Laurence?
Post by: oyamaband on March 26, 2014, 12:58:28 AM
I'm having a debate with fellow fan about whether Larry's first name is spelt Lawrence or Laurence. We have books that have both spellings.
Can someone please help end this debate?

It's actually correctly spelt 'Low Rents' that is proven by the family business Low Rents Mullen and Son Real Estate and Finest Bespoke Vacuum Cleaners.

It's LaWrence. In the book U2 by U2 (the most reliable source I guess) Larry's name is spelt with a W, not with a U. Plus, you will find on the Internet - thank God Google exists! -, a Larry's ID card, I think when he was working for the oil company... LaWrence is the written form used.

It's Lawrence. I know because LaUrence is my real name and I remember he was the first person I saw growing up with a different spelling....
