Beautiful classic name that doesn't really date.

V pretty.
I really love Louise.

Oooh, lovely, good feedback. I agree its v pretty. And I like the connection with Louisa M Alcott (of Little Women fame). My other daughter is Laura, named after Laura Ingalls (of Little House on the Prairie fame).

Classic pretty name but not too girly/babyish so sounds elegant on a grown woman too. Love Laura as well, they sit very nicely together

How funny, I'm Louise (go figure) and my sister is a Laura. I also know two little girls with those names.

Lovely classic name

I LOVE Louisa! Not very keen on Louise though (sorry) which would put me off.

my daughter is called Luisa,born in Spain,is the spanish version........we love it and people always comment on how pretty it is

My name.
Obviously fabulous grin

It's lovely not being Louise, cos there were 6 in my year at school.

I get some strange spellings of it - Lousia, Louisea to name but two but all in all I like it!

i love it...really simple yet timeless. what middle name?

weegiemum Wed 12-Aug-09 20:33:37

I like Louisa - prefer Louise (dd1 was almost Louise or Elaine but ended up as Katherine)

Nice choice!

piscesmoon Wed 12-Aug-09 20:38:03

Love it!

belindarose Wed 12-Aug-09 20:41:53

Love it. Can't have it ourselves as surname begins with 'L' and don't like the alliterative thing.

It was my great grandmas name and we would have used it had ds1 been a girl. His name is Lewis. My grandma was known as Louie to most people.

ravenAK Wed 12-Aug-09 21:05:33

Nice - classic & elegant.

Lizzylou Wed 12-Aug-09 21:11:01

I love it, I know of two Louisas and they are very beautiful smile

I like it, its on my short list too, although DH isn't too keen.

pointydog Wed 12-Aug-09 22:55:47

it is very lovely

If I'd had a girl she would have been called Louisa. I love that name.

A colleague at work has a 3yr old called Louisa, they've shortened it to Lolly!

Love it. Was on (my) list for DS if he had been a DD, although we went to a wedding where teh bride was Louisa shortly before he was born, so would have looked a bit odd anyway.

Prefer Lousia. I think a Luisa would spend her whole time spelling out her name unless she is Italian. I am all for shortcuts in making life easier.
