What do you guys think of Luelle/Louelle for a girl...would love to call her LuLu for short smile DH seems to disagree with EVERY name I suggest so would be good to see what others think.....

Would spell it Louelle but sounds made up to me. If you want to use Lulu why not go with something like Elouise? Far prettier imo.

We do like Elouise....however we are not too keen on Ellie and as 'El' is the first syllable of that name I'd be worried it would get shortened to that.

Louelle lives in a trailer park and sings country & western songs about her 5 divorces.

How about Luisa/Louisa? Louelle does sound a bit American to me, a character from Dallas!

Ok yes- get the Ellie thing. What about Lucinda or Lucia?

Or Lucy/Lucie

Not at all keen on louelle I'm afraid and agree that it sounds very country and western.

Its not to my taste. At all. Lulu is lovely though. I prefer all of the suggestions made here to Luelle.

It's a bit King Of The Hill!

I'd use Louisa or Lucia and then let the nick name come out of that.

Or Lucille?

Looks made up. What about Luan?

Lurlene? As in the Simpsons episode!

I like it. I think it sounds sweet.

How about Luella?

Sounds to me like someone who'd be friends with Jolene!
