As a sibling for Gabriel, nn Lola? Does it go?

Who's nn is Lola?

Sorry just seen make Gabriel rather than female Gabrielle.

Why don't you just call baby Lola?

One of my most favourite names ever. I would have had a Louisa if I'd had a baby girl.

I think both Louisa and Lola are cute. Louisa is more grown u o guess. Lola might seem a bit silly on a grown woman but Lola is adorable on a little girl

My middle name and I really like it. It's a winner for me.

Love it! Very pretty, and underused.

Gorgeous name, but why the nickname? Either call her Lola, or stick to Louisa, or Lou for short. Nicknames that are so different to the original, or stand alone in their own right, just gets confusing, imho.

Louisa is a lovely name though.

Underused so definitely go with it

I want something serious on the birth certificate, Areyoumad. I like Lola but I don't think it passes the High Court judge test. And I like Louisa - I envision using the two interchangeably, just Lola more in family situations and Louisa more in formal situations.

My name is Louise,and I hate it.
It's awful,the nn Lou has stuck for me,everyone has aleays called me this,despite my protestations.
It's horrid,I may as well have been named toilet.

I agree Louisa is slightly better...

Lula is a nn for Louisa according to my baby name book, Jojay, so Lola is not such a stretch. I'm just not keen on Lou. Also Louisa is a family name, and the last holder of it shortened it to Lou.

I like Louise as well as Louisa smile.
Lulu is a more usual nn, I think, but it is so babyish.
Lola is just a meh name in my ears.

My best friend is called Louisa we call her Weezy!!!

It's the most beautiful girl's name ever (disclaimer: I may have one of my own smile)!

I think it goes well with Gabriel.
