I very much like this name! And I would consider using it someday. I also like the pronunciation "Lordz".

This is my mom's name, and I really like it. She is very very nice, and I love her.

Even though Lourdes should be pronounced "LUWRD", I have only heard it pronounced "LUWR-dess".
-- swisssugar  1/21/2007
So the pronunciation is "LUWRDZ" (as in rhyming with "words")? I'd rather it be pronounced "LOR-dess", but oh well.

If this is an English and Spanish name, why is it pronounced and spelled in French? Isn't it used in France, too?

I do like this name, but I don't like it pronounced lords. I think it is much nicer lord-ess. However, if I were to name a kid that, I'd fear they'd be called lords, and it just reminds me too much of god.

The pet forms of this name are Luly (loo-lee) and Lula (loo-luh) which I think are beautiful.

I really love this name. It has beautiful connotations of healing and miracles. I love Lola as a nickname for Lourdes, too.

Actress Mia Farrow`s full name is Maria de Lourdes Villiers-Farrow.

When my French husband pronounces this famous place name he says, "Loord" with the lovely French gutteral "r" and the "es" left off. They do that a lot -- the French -- add a bunch of letters to words which they have absolutely no intention of saying! "Ils chantent" (they sing) sounds like, "il shant"! No lie!

The name is pronounced Loor dess. That is the way I pronounce my name, also the way Madonna pronounces her daughter's name and the way almost all the girls named Lourdes pronounce the name, it is a classic name.
-- Lourdes  12/12/2007
French (pl/f) for "heavy". Ouch. And yeah, the French pronunciation would be "lourd" (really round "O," guttural, "r").

I don't think it gives a very intelligent impression of people to name their daughter after a place known for religious lunatics who think they see the Virgin Mary or Jesus in trees, doors, pieces of bread, etc, and who think water from a specific place can produce miracles. It's not a very pretty name, and I would never use any name Madonna has used.

The comment of the above poster is the very most immature and ignorant one I read on BtN so far. It is sad that some people feel the need to push their intolerant views on others.

While originally I didn't realize this was a given name, once I learned my Spanish professor from Paraguay bore it it grew on me. Now I think it's a beautiful name for a girl.

This name was used by a female on the 1930 Censo México (Mexico Census).

Very pretty and unique. I only like it when pronounced LOR-DES.

When I first read Madonna's daughter's name, I immediately pronounced it (LAWRD-ess).

I love the name Lourdes, it's beautiful and unique. It runs in the family and hopefully I can keep it going.

Hideous!
-- Chrila96  1/17/2011
It's actually pretty now but only pronounced loor des. Lordz is still pretty ugly.

Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon is the daughter of American singer Madonna.

The name Lourdes was given to exactly 100 baby girls born in the US in 2012.

What a tacky name. It's nothing special. It's just Lords but a different spelling.
Not fond of titles as names. Including like Princess, queen, queenie and all that garbage.
