I want to ask a if a this is a person's name.
Lauren
French translation:Several possibilities
Explanation:
One of them is: 'Vous vous appelez Lauren' ?

If you know Lauren well (which I doubt, since you don't know her first name), you may also say: 'tu t'appelles (Lauren, Paul, John, Mary etc)' ?

Or (coll.): ' c'est quoi, votre nom ? Lauren ?' 'Tu t'appelles comment ? Lauren ?'

etc
