Sorry, keep starting these name threads but I do like to have feedback on names.

Louisa for a girl (obviously), what do you think. Has a special meaning as have lovely SIL call Louise and wonderful cousin also called Louise, both very special people to us.

I would probably shorten it to Lulu as a term of endearment.

It is one of my favourite names and will never date.

pgwithnumber3 Sun 10-Aug-08 11:56:25

That is what I am trying to find, a timeless name. It has more to it than just Louise as well.

It also has that rare quality that it works on someone who drives a ten-year-old Nissan Micra and works in the HR department or someone who travels by private jet and is a world authority on Meiji-era netsuke.

My great grandma was Louisa and she passed away a few weeks before i found out i was pregnant so we were considering Louisa/Louise/Lucy for the baby if a girl, but he was a boy so is Lewis

Mmm, not sure about any of the middle names mentioned but thanks anyway! Already have a Grace Elisabeth so both those names out and a Maya Rose.

I definitely think it needs to be a one syllable middle name, Grace would go perfect but as I said, it is DD1's name.

Lulumama, not don't know if we are definitely having a girl, just mulling over names! Will find out in 5 weeks though.

pgwithnumber3 Sun 10-Aug-08 14:55:51

lulumama Sun 10-Aug-08 16:17:50

It's a lovely name, imo. It's a classic name, without being common or anything. But neither does it look as if you are stuck in a timewarp, iykwim

Lovely, is on my list in case DC is a girl. We are expecting a boy, but just in case. Oddly, our girly middle name was always going to be Hope, as we used to live in a village called that. Like pgwithnumber3, we will find out in 5 weeks.
