The spelling of the forename (formerly called Christian name Laurence/Lawrence is disputed. It is a matter of personal choice, or taste. The present writer of Awe prefers to write the name of the original Saint with '-u-, on the grounds that he predates the invention of the letter '-w-' (7th century). It must be said, however, that both Attwater (1965) and [the Catholic Encyclopedia] prefer Lawrence.
