I love the name Lou. But I'm searching for a full name for Lou. I like Lize-Lou, Louana, Lousanne, but they're not good enough. ;)

Lou seems to make a good middle name for girls, but I can't imagine it as a first name. It's too short-sounding.

Can also be short for Louisa.

The thing about this name is that it's pronounced the same way as Loo, which is a British word for bathroom. I use the word Loo (despite not being British), and that's why I wouldn't use Lou as a name.

Who would want to be named after the toilet?

A nice name, but I would probably spell it Lu rather than Lou, partially because it comes from my favourite cartoon, 'Mike, Lu, & Og', and partially because Lou is short for Louis.

Since I am planning on naming my daughter Louise, I find Lou to be a very safe nickname and is easy to catch on to when your young, so I might introduce her as Lou in the future.

I don't know what Heidi Klum was thinking. Lou is dumb, especially as a legal name on a girl. It sounds too redneck and masculine to be a girls' name. It's also very old-fashioned. If you want to call your daughter Lou, just name her something like Louise, Lucy, or Luana and then call her Lou for short.

I don't like Lou on a boy, it makes me think of an old man. But on a girl, as a nickname for Louisa, it's so sweet. I really like masculine nick-names on girls, Lou is one of the best.

This name has grown on me for both genders. I think it's really cute for a boy, and its kind of edgy but sweet for a girl. I was interested to find it was so popular in France for girls. I would love to meet a little girl (or boy) named Lou!

My name is Lou and it isn't short for anything. I don't get why they said "Short form of LOUISE or LOUIS." IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE SHORT FOR ANYTHING!

My niece's name is Lou, sometimes I like to have a little fun with her by calling her Koo-koo-banana-Lou. I personally like the name Lou but I wouldn't use it. Although it is adorable!
Better on girl...As a middle name.

Bananrama YOU'RE DUMB. I LOVE the name Lou. Can you tell from my username? That's a rude comment to make too. Your name is probably something boring like Amy or Deb. Lou sounds great with Annalise as a middle name. Very feminine and very elegant. I'm in love with it. My favorite character from Mr. Mercedes has the name Lou too! It's very up and coming, and close minded people can't see that.
