wanna fight about it? ok, let's fight...lol
Everything about his name depends on what name you want to consider...if you consider him as a person and his name as in his original English name(since L is born in London), then yes, his name is L Lawliet .
But if you consider him as a charachter in a manga and on a larger view which include the japanese pronounciation of english words, and the fact that a japanese manga charachter is considered japanese even if his person in the story comes from another country, then the thing is a bit more complicated...
Death Note is a Japanese manga/anime, therefore the original names are japanese.
The original name of L is "ローライト エル" and it reads Rōraito Eru .
Japanese people can't pronounce the letter R in a proper way and they pronounce it like the letter L, and to add more, many japanese words, especially the ones that forms names, lose the last letter in the pronunciation if it is a vowel, so Rōraito Eru it's actually pronounced Lōlait El . To reinforce this thesis, the translation of his last name( ローライト/Rōraito ) is " Low-Light ", and "Rōraito" and " Low-Light " have the same pronounciation in japanese(just to mention, Light Yagami japanese name is ライト/Raito, same writing and pronounciation of the 2nd part of L last name, which reinforce even more the " Low-Light " thesis).
This can be reduced in " Lawlite " to be his english last name cuz of its similarity with the word ローライト/Rōraito , and the same argument can be applied to his 1st name: his original japanese name is エル/Eru , it reads El , so its english derivated name(cuz of the sound similarity) is L .
So, to sum it up, L Lawliet is his english name, derivated from the japanese pronounciation of his original name, Lōlait El , so his real 1st name is El , not L .
P.S.: the whole thing about his name being a single letter is, of course, something connected to the Wammy's House habit to give single letters nicknames to their orphans...Mello being M, Near being N, the guy that committed suicide being A, and Beyond Birthday being B
