DP wants this for DC2 if he's a boy, but I'm not convinced....

Help convince me...or not!

As long as you don't have (or go on to have) a Netty, Willy or Fanny it's fine.

Is it to be pronounced Lewis or Louie?

I've come across a few at school, with it pronounced differently. Could be irritating I suppose.

LadyWithLapdog Sat 03-May-14 21:13:37

Love it.

Cataline Sat 03-May-14 21:15:25

I was going to ask same thing about pronunciation noble
Like both but Louis as loo-ee and Lewis as loo- iss

flipflopsonfifthavenue Sat 03-May-14 21:18:37

Would be pronounced loo-ee.

DS1 is Edward (Teddy)

I really like it.

Piddlepuddle Sat 03-May-14 21:31:31

Lovely name!

CleverOl10 Sat 03-May-14 21:37:59

It can be confusing how to pronounce - at my school there are boys who pronounce it both ways and get annoyed if you get it wrong. Might be annoying. Although I think it should be said Louie, right?

evamummy Sat 03-May-14 22:57:38

I know a Louis who pronounces it the English way, Lou-is. And a Luis.
It's not a name I particularly like.

evamummy Sat 03-May-14 23:00:05

Also, doesn't the French pronunciation sound like loo (ie)?!

Great name.love it

Hup Sat 03-May-14 23:25:52

There are lots of Louis' about - if that's something that bothers you, pronounced both ways. I teach 5 - 4 are loo-ee and I Lewis

scottishmummy Sat 03-May-14 23:27:56

Louis=loo-ee
Lewis=loo-is

Hup Sat 03-May-14 23:36:19

You'd think scottishmummy but not always the case!

scottishmummy Sat 03-May-14 23:38:17

Love both names,but to me theyre v different pronunciation

Every time I read or hear Louis these days a picture of Louis Walsh's little face pops into my head.
Sorry.

I came on to say I really liked it,especially as you are intending to pronounce it correctly.

People commonly pronouncing Louis as Lewis doesn't make it right, it just makes a fair few people wrong.

However Hen has just totally ruined the name for me.
