I used to HATE the name Louisa because at primary school that was the name of the class bully, everyone hated her. But then she left school. After that I read Pride and Prejudice and now I think it's a BEAUTIFUL name.

Louisa was used as the name of the second von Trapp daughter in the movie "The Sound of Music". Louisa's character represented the real second daughter, who was named Maria "Mitzi".

I knew a girl of Chinese origin and she spelt it Luissa, but she wasn't that nice and she sort of ruined the name for me.

I think this is a really lovely name. I automatically think of Louisa May Alcott when I hear this name.

This name is much better than Louise. I have heard it pronounced Lu-eez-uh or Lu-ees-uh.

Louisa Musgrove is one of the two Musgrove sisters in Jane Austen's Persuasion. She's depicted as fun-loving and high-spirited, and the more reserved Anne Elliot (the heroine) believes the man she loves is attracted to Louisa because of it. Louisa's foolish jump from the seawall at Lyme Regis results in her death, and it's probably the most famous part of the novel.

Louisa Musgrove did NOT die after jumping off the wall at Lyme. She recovers from her injury, and marries at the end of the novel.

Louisa Chick is a character in Charles Dickens' novel "Dombey and Son."

Great choice if you're looking for something classical, yet whimsical. Call her Lou or Lu. That's just so sweet!

My sister's name is Louisa. Louisa is very classical, pretty, and much more unique than Louise!

Very pretty name - I prefer Louisa to Louise.

I think this name is beautiful. Much more pleasant to hear than Louise. :)

Louise sounds a little tired to American ears in the first name spot now, so Louisa is becoming a more commonly given name to newborns. Louisa still doesn't rate in the top 1000, but it is climbing.

This is my name and I adore it. I was never teased about my name probably because it's an enticing name, not to brag though :)

Louisa Catherine Adams was the wife of John Quincy Adams (the 6th presidnt of the United States of America).

Throughout the centuries, Louisa has been used frequently and consistently in The Netherlands and Germany - and it is still used today. Perhaps not as common as used to be, but e.g. in The Netherlands there were 27 Louisa's born in 2010. As such, Dutch and German should be added to the 'Usage' section for Louisa. [noted -ed]

Louisa (1692-1712) was the youngest daughter of King James II of England and his second wife Mary of Modena.

I love this name! It's absolutely beautiful and deserves a comeback in the US. It also makes a more unique middle name than Louise :)

Can also be pronounced Lou-EES-ah. [noted -ed]

One of my favorite girl names. I wanted to be named Louisa when I was growing up, and it's still one of the names I would love to have now as an adult. It's feminine and pretty, yet also strong and classic, underused in my opinion and fits right in with the revived Sophia, Emma, Amelia names. The meaning "little warrior" is great to bestow on your daughter, too! Louisa can suit a little girl, with a cutesy nickname like Lulu, but can mature with her as she grows older, making a good strong name for an adult woman.

Louisa Rose Allen, better known by her stage name Foxes, is an English singer-songwriter.

My name is Louisa. It is my grandmother's name but once she moved from Scotland to Ireland everybody here just called her Louise. But my mother preferred Louisa over Louise and I am glad she did. It's an unusual name to have here and everyone does pronounce it wrong or call me Louise, the latter one annoys me. I'm also glad that the name isn't overused anymore, but it would be nice for it to become a little more popular in the future. I wouldn't want the name to die out!

Louisa Clarke is the protagonist in Jojo Moye's book "Me Before You." They are making a movie out of it starring the lovely Emilia Clarke.

This name sounds sooooo classic and old. I can't imagine a young girl with this name.

Louisa Nécib is a French women's international footballer who plays for French club Olympique Lyonnais of the Division 1 Féminine. She plays as a central attacking midfielder and is described as a "gifted playmaker" who "possesses superb technique". Nécib is also known for her "elegant possession, sublime passing skills, and cultured touch on the ball". She has been labeled by the French media as "the female Zidane" - like Zinedine Zidane, she has Algerian ancestry, grew up in Marseille and possesses immense skill, especially as a playmaker with an eye for goal. As such, she has been nicknamed "Ziza", a variant of Zidane's "Zizou". In an interview with FIFA. Com just before the 2012 Olympics, she alluded to the comparison, saying, "Zidane is a role model for me. He was always the player that I most enjoyed watching. The comparison was made frequently when I was starting out, and now, as the years pass, it happens less and less often. But I wouldn't say I’m tired of it." She often attempts to downplay the comparison, though, stating "Being compared to Zidane is really nice, but I don’t think it can harm me because I’ve been hearing it since I was very young."

Personally, I adore this name. It's so fresh while still having a long and detailed history behind it unlike many other names of a more modern coinage. So much better than boring and common old Louise. Louisa should definitely raise in popularity as people hear it more :-)

I have just recently heard of the name Louisa & I am absolutely smitten with it! I think it’s beautiful! It sounds much better than the name Louise! It is a mix between an old and new name. It takes an old name and adding A at the end makes it more modern! I love it & the nickname Lou!
