Hi there, DS arrived 5 weeks ago - I hate introducing him, everyone is so confused... He is nameless.

DP's favourite is Blue. Yep, Blue. He wants to give him the NN Bluey... hmm

My favourite is Louis.

Just wondering if anyone knows of a name similar to both? But of a long shot, but it's worth a try.

Is Louis pronounced loo-ee or loo-is?

PurpleBeard Mon 28-Mar-16 16:36:10

Loo-ee

Blue/Blew - think he'll be teased!

Louie is a nice name

What about

Drew
Hue

Or something different

Jenson
Dexter
Corey
Orry

Beau (pronounced bow)?

Could you have louis (pronounced lew-ee) nn bluey? Louis is lovely. Congrats on your DS!

NovaArt3mis Mon 28-Mar-16 16:37:55

Then I'd call him Louis and if DP wants to call him Bluey he can (he'd likely be the only one to do so).

Lovely name and congrats flowers

Actually, I never thought of Louis and Bluey being similar

Call him Louis and let your DH nickname his Bluey Louis. That way he'll have a proper non-ridiculous name you can present to the rest of the world and DH can indulge his daft preference.

Loads of kids end up being called soppy nicknames by their parents by accident anyway!

Louis is lovely. Blue is absurd. Go for Louis!

LittleNelle Mon 28-Mar-16 17:04:50

Louis with Blue/Louis as a nickname.

Or Blue as a middle name, Louis Blue Smith. I think it's quite nice.

I know a little girl called Blue - might put your DH off it a bit!!

Louis is a great name!

How about Huey - bit like Louis and Bluey 😀

They sound so similar. Go with Louis and he can be nn bluey Louis. Or gooey Louis or anything else that rhymes.

Weren't Huey Louis and Bluey the names of Donald Duck's nephews??

Sorry, absolutely nothing else to add to the the thread other than my observation...

Sophronia Mon 28-Mar-16 18:46:17

Louis Blue?

emwithme Mon 28-Mar-16 18:47:36

Stroke no, they were Huey, Dewey and Louie.

I love Louis, and "Bluey Louis" is a lovely nn.

ilovevegcrisps Mon 28-Mar-16 18:49:27

Louis is a perfectly lovely name!

nectarini1983 Mon 28-Mar-16 19:30:29

Louis is lovely! Bluey makes me think of some yobbo referring to a five pound note!

BuzzLightyearsHoneyBun Mon 28-Mar-16 19:41:41

Louis Blue is a nice enough compromise I think

ThroughThickAndThin01 Mon 28-Mar-16 19:44:19

Louis is lovely.

He can nickname him Bluey

My best friend as a toddler was called blue. It doesn't sound odd to me, but I do prefer Louis

ScarletForYa Mon 28-Mar-16 19:51:07

Blue is stupid. Tell you're dh to cop on and go ahead and register him as Louis.

Five weeks is too long to be fluting around about a child's name.

Blue? What's the matter with your DH. He does know bullies exist doesn't he?
