Thanks a lot!! We are really struggling to find a name for her!!

I think Louisa is a prettier spelling.

Just googled. Apparently Luiza is the Polish / Portuguese / Romanian form. Is that right, OP?

Agree with Divine totally

I like it.

Prefer Louisa, beautiful name.

Suspect the OP has good reasons to spell it like that, could have Portuguese or other family connections, so she probably wants to know what it looks like /sounds like generally in this country.

Then again I could be way off the mark, in which case as you were!

Well... Tbh, in my mind the name is spelled Louisa.

But I agree, I'm suspecting you have a reason for spelling it this way?

I think the name is really really lovely smile!!

Pretty name. I would spell it Luisa TBH, as I think the 's' looks softer, but maybe there's a cultural reason for spelling it with the 'z'. Anyway prefer both these spellings to Louisa (even though that's fine), somehow the English spelling gives the name a completely different vibe.

Louisa - very pretty.

In portuguese it's no longer spelled Luiza, it's Luisa smile

If you clearly have heritage that leads to a different spelling then lovely. If not, spell it the normal way smile

In Portugal perhaps but in Brazil it's very much still Luiza, I've never met a Luisa. Luis is becoming popular over Luiz though.

I would go with "Louisa" unless you have cultural background that makes it worthwhile to put up with the misspellings you will inevitably experience!

Nice name.
