I hate this name. It looks weird written down and doesn’t sound nice either. One of the worst names I’ve ever heard.
Some middle names:
Lois Lane
Lois Olympia
Lois Irma
Lois Sarah.
I hope this name makes a comeback with other vintage names. Even though it is associated with other women, I think a little girl named Lois would be adorable!
A delightfully simple name with history and a rich, resonant sound to it. All of the sounds in this name are pleasant on their own and in concert with one another. With the popularity of shorter, two-syllable names, and vintage names, Lois seems destined for a resurgence. I adore the Lois Lane connection.
It's a good name.
I have been researching a g-g-g-g-aunt of mine called Lois Larner from Northleach, Gloucestershire in England. She married not 1, but 2 of my g-g-g-g-uncles in the early 1800s.
It proved difficult finding her baptism record, until I found the entry in 1792 as LUCY Larner - I wonder if there is a connection between these names?
On the day of my Baptism, Mom chose the name "Karen" for me. The priest told her that as far as he knew, Karen wasn't a Christian name. When told to choose another, Mom looked toward my brother's back pocket where he'd stashed a Superman comic book. A light bulb lit up and she chose the name Lois. I've always been happy to carry it; it's not common, I've only met a few others and it's simple to say and spell. Well, you'd think so, but it's been mispronounced and butchered over the years. For instance, if I don't spell it over the phone for doctors, I become Louise or Louis. My nicknames have been everything from Lo-lo to Lo-isimmo to "Dois" (a mispronunciation from a 4 year-old) But my favorite is whoever misspelled it to a junk-mail provider and called me "Luis". I get lots of mail from companies selling testosterone pills or Hispanic political candidates. I don't mind. It's only one of my names. My last name has 14 letters and five syllables and there's a whole OTHER story about that one.
This is a classic name, and the name of a relative. RIP, dear. I like it.
I am the 7th generation "Lois" from my mother's family. My grandmother and aunt were named Lois and before them great grandmothers and great aunts, etc. Sad to think I will be the last Lois of this wonderful name in the family, but hey if it's meant to be, so be it.

Lois is a wonderful name. It's cute, pretty and unique. I think it's really interesting how this was the name of Timothy's grandmother. I had discovered this name because of the character Lois Lane (Superman's love interest).
Lois is a beautiful, endearing name. In my family, it is bittersweet. Lois Ann was the name of my grandma's younger sister who died of meningitis at the age of 2 in 1936. When I hear this name, it brings joy to my heart and a tear to my eye.

I just love this name. I can't quite put my finger on why, though. And I love the sound of "Lois Lane." Alliteration makes everything better.
Actress Lois Wilson (1894-1988).
Lois is the name of the mother in the Sunday funnies series "Hi and Lois."
It means laws or code in French. I think it has a mild sound to it, somewhere between the line of feminine and masculine. In other words it's not very feminine or very masculine. That doesn't make it a bad choice for a name, indeed it's a sweet name.
This is the ugliest name I've ever heard.
Hello silenthistories who commented in 2010. I am a Lois, it is not ugly, and I am tired of small minded, insecure individuals who relieve their own insecurities by belittling others, ahh the mark of an unintelligent person is to resort to personal insults as they haven't the brain power to defend themselves any other way. It takes a strong woman to carry this name, strong indeed to carry it, defend it, work it, and be proud of it, despite the constant negativity spewed at us. Proud to be a Lois, called Lois Lane, and fabulous in every way too- thank you very much!

This is a beautiful name. It's very catchy. If I have a daughter I'll name her Lois.
I always thought that this was a feminine variant of Louis.
My youngest daughter is named Lois and I think it is a lovley name. It suits her down to a 'T' - she was born prematuly due to me carrying her so low so Lois was the ideal name, and of couse being the name of Superman's girlfriend.
I LOVE the name Lois and knowing that her name is of the person in the Superman comics makes it SOOOO much better! I really love it!
I like this. It's simple but not too plain like Jane etc. Lois is also feminine, pretty and sounds wonderful.
Am I the only person who never met a Lois? I do like that name though.
I like the way Lois is pronounced. (I love names that end in "s")
Nevermind, I just remembered about Superman, and that really ticks me off.
I don't particularly like this name, it reminds me of a nagging, American house wife.
No offence, but all I can say is YUCK.
