You would meet at least 1 Lilou when you visit France, especially girls that are under the age of 15!

Lilou is very old name in salalah city. My mother name Lilou she is 80 years old. There are around 40 females in the world use this name (before the 5th element film) all of them over 40 years old. This name only in my city no other arab country or even in my country use this name. This name 100s years old. No meaning of this name I think it is from lila as easy way to spell it.

Ugh, I hate this name. In France, it's like Madison and Nevaeh. It shot up in popularity out of nowhere (well not out of nowhere, my guess would be it's because of the movie The Fifth Element) and many are saying it is going to be in the top 10 for 2013. It's fine as a nickname for Lily Louise or something like that, but its so cutesy and ridiculous as a full name. I have a feeling it will die out just as fast as it became popular and date the bearer horribly. I wish more people would choose classic, elegant names for their children rather than stuff like this.

I totally agree with Bonjourmonjoli above. It's kinda nice as a nickname but as a real name, it's ridiculous and childish. Little girls grow up to be women, parents should remember...

It CAN be a nickname but it's not where it comes from as a stand alone name at all.

It first appeared in 1997 and comes directly from the movie "The Fifth Element" which was released that year. In this movie the main female character is named Leeloo, which was written phonetically by parents 'Lilou' (the name is not written in the movie).

The movie was a great success in France, hence the apparition of the name. Then it went viral because Lilou goes perfectly in the trend of cutesy L names given to girls these days.

Lee-loo? That sounds utterly ridiculous as a name. Imagine a forty year old woman named Lilou/Lilu/Leeloo etc.

This name doesn't sound very mature or dignified. And it's so damn trendy - it's kind of like the Nevaeh of the French names. I prefer more traditional French names.

I adore this name, I do see why others wouldn't, it sounds like a little kid, or a dog, but I still love it! I don't know how this name would age, but I think that is the magic in it! To me, Lilou and Rosalie would be really cute for sisters!

There is a slight spelling difference, but Leeloo is a main character in the movie "The Fifth Element." She is an alien destined to save the world and is played by Milla Jovovich.

In France the name comes from names that end in the sound -li or -lee, with the addition of -lou as a sign of affection. My daughter is named Olivia Louise but goes by Lilou in school and at home.
