only ttc at the moment but interested in opinions.

i really struggle with girl's names, but somehow during a late night conversation DH and I discovered we actually both liked the above as a name for imaginary dc2 if a girl.

would be Lois Catherine (surname).

thanks in advance. have namechanged for this just in case of encountering my rl friends.

very stuck for potential boy names, that'll be another thread soon!

Love it. Was 2nd choice for dd2's middle name (ended up with Erin).

It's very nice.

I really like it. Imaginary number 3 could be a Lois...

i think it is elegant and pretty, and i know 2 under 4 and they are so cute and delightful.

Love it! I know a Lois and she's adorable!

I do like it BUT my mother's a teacher and has a Lois she tutors which just invites 'that's cos she's the Lois in her class' jokes from my siblings who live at home/pop in frequently.

So long as it's Lois Griffin not Lois Lane.

piprabbit - DH does like a bit of Family Guy, yes!

Phew - couldn't be doing with Lois Lane as a role model myself.

although I'm pretty sure he wanted to be Superman as a little boy, he didn't appear to give a crap about Ms Lane.

Oh I do, it's lovely.

ohnoshedittant Mon 03-Jan-11 17:02:07

I don't like it

Edmundo Mon 03-Jan-11 19:37:27

I always mishear it as Lewis. Not keen.

Nightstar Mon 03-Jan-11 19:52:58

I love it. Though i personally like the Lois Lane idea. She was a fab role model. She was a daring Investigative Reporter. A real career girl who was also v attractive (or supposed to be!) I like Terri Hatcher in the role best.

How could you ask for a better role model?

I love it!

ShoppingDays Mon 03-Jan-11 20:12:49

I like it. Lois Catherine would be a lovely name

snapcrunch Mon 03-Jan-11 20:29:28

thanks, seems mostly positive then.

all i need to do now is get pregnant again. :-)

tbh i can't remember the movie Lois much, think Teri Hatcher would be who I'd picture!

I like it a lot. I also like the longer version Eloise.

The mum in Malcolm in the Middle is a Lois too - must be popular in America!

snapcrunch Mon 03-Jan-11 20:49:16

I'd forgotten that Lois! i watched enough episodes as well.

TheBreastmilksOnMe Mon 03-Jan-11 20:51:46

I like it if it is pronounced sounding like 'voice' and not the female version of 'Lewis'.

SlightlyTubbyHali Mon 03-Jan-11 21:00:18

TBOM: do you mean "Loice"?

I've only ever heard it pronounced Low-is.

snapcrunch Mon 03-Jan-11 21:01:04

i think I've only heard it the 'Low-iss' way.

embarrassingly i don't really know the origins of the name or how it 'should' sound. blush

tried to look it up there but my phone couldn't cope with the page i loaded!

snapcrunch Mon 03-Jan-11 21:04:01

if we used it i can't imagine us pronouncing it like voice though i don't think.

piprabbit Mon 03-Jan-11 21:12:18

I've hear people say Loice instead of Lice when talking about headlice - must be an accent, but I'm not sure where it comes from.
