Our DD2 is 3 days old and has no name yet. Favourites at the moment are Louiza or Eliza which go quite well with DD1 name Zara Sofia.

What do you think? Louiza or Eliza

Others on short list which could serve as middle names are:

What fresh hell is Louiza?

Definitely Eliza.

Louisa. Or what about Elise??

Eliza or Louisa with Cate as a middle name.

AuntieStella Tue 12-Jan-16 06:38:08

Louisa Cate

Or Eliza Louise (though every other person my age has Louise as a middle name)

LouiSa with an S. Just looks wrong with a Z....

To go with Zara I suggest

With the greatest respect though Stella, The baby's not your age. hmm.

Both gorgeous names but I'd go for Eliza Cate or Eliza Louise

Louiza is dreadful. Louisa, if you must.

I prefer Eliza.

I like Louisa, Hannah and Ava.

Love Louisa, but with an S not a Z.

AuntieStella Tue 12-Jan-16 10:54:56

Yes, I know.

It was seriously, seriously overused. But enough time has passed for me to think it's ok to suggest again, as I like it very much despite that factor. I do mention potential drawbacks, so OP can consider them even if only to discard them.

How about Luisa which would be the z way of saying it (Spanish etc). Luisa Cate

Eliza is too similar to Zara, it's a nice name though.

squoosh Tue 12-Jan-16 13:03:15

I know a Greek Louiza but if you're not Greek I'd just go with Louisa.

squoosh Tue 12-Jan-16 13:04:32

I also know a Polish Zofia and Zuzana. Dead international me!

HumbleCrumble Tue 12-Jan-16 13:40:01

I like Louisa with an S, but if you spell it with a Z I think it looks too much like you're trying to be matchy-matchy with Zara. So I would say Louisa Cate or Eliza Cate.

TheWomanInTheWall Tue 12-Jan-16 14:05:55

Louisa and Louise both have a 'z' sound rather than an 's' sound, to me!

AlisonWunderland Tue 12-Jan-16 14:08:38

My print is too small so I read Cate as CAFE.
It's only a matter of time....

Louisa spelled this way
