Aside from Laurie in _Little Women_, every single Laurie (or Lori, which 
to my mind is the *wrong* spelling, although seemingly the default one 
here in the US anyway) I've ever encountered was female. Is it different 
outside the US? It surprised me a bit to have you say my name isn't 
gender-obvious. Do others see "Laurie" that way? 

Quite a famous male Laurie is the poet Laurie Lee, author of *Cider with Rosie* et al.
