Zach though i prefer it as a shortening for Zachary

SemperIdem · 13/03/2023 22:25

Louis pronounced Loo-ee or Lewis? If the former, then I prefer it to Zach, if the latter then I prefer Zach.

Louis! I think it’s such a gorgeous name.

Louis has the pronunciation issues. Is it louie or Lewis? Lewis isn’t too bad, Louie is dreadful, cute for a toddler but not a teen/grown man. Zach is fine

Tiggy321 · 14/03/2023 05:19

Louis but pronounced Louie not Lewis which is terrible. My eldest son is Louis and luckily we now live in a French speaking country so his name is perfect!

GBoucher · 14/03/2023 05:22

Zach short for Zachary.

Reddahlias · 14/03/2023 07:58

Louis is often pronounced Lou-is

Zachary is ok but I don't like Zach as a nickname - it sounds unfinished

Reddahlias · 14/03/2023 07:59

Zach can sound like Sack

Theoldwoman · 14/03/2023 08:24

One hundred percent Louis.

PearlClutzsche · 14/03/2023 12:07

Louis, but only if it's pronounced correctly.

Zach is nice, but should be short for Zachary.

Luredbyapomegranate · 16/03/2023 08:10

Zach, but ideally short for Zachary or Zachariah

Louis is a bit wet

DuchessOfSausage · 16/03/2023 08:24

I read Zach as Zatch.
If the choice was Zac (short for Zachary) or Louis, I'd choose Zac, but it isn't, so I'd say Louis.
Both names a bit too current for me, and both with more than one spelling.
I don't like Louie.

TurnLeftAtTheBakery · 16/03/2023 08:56

I think Louis is cute and very French (nothing wrong with the French part but I do think it suits children better than adults). If you want it pronounced Lewis I'd spell it that way ( you didn't say you did, just some people pronounce it differently).

I like Zachary shortened to Zach/Zac.

HadEnoughOfBears · 16/03/2023 09:05


(but only pronounced the French way)

Bienemajas · 16/03/2023 22:11

I read Zach as Zatch.

Me too. Like Such, Much etc
