How do you pronounce Eloise

(15 Posts)

Just curiosity, not having another one
I always thought it would be Eh-loys but the CBeebies presenters say Eh-Louise!

I have one

it's Ell o eeze

ok I'll admit I'm wrong!
Just doesn't seem right, it's basically Lois which is pronounced differently!

Because lois doesn't have an e on the end of it.

hmm, yes I suppose you're right

I knew one and she said it should be

Elle oh Waas ('actually')

We were about 7 and it made my parent PTSL (out of her earshot)
