Trouble with Loubet?
Louisa Beth is our current front runner. What do you all think? Is it too "Little Women," and does that even matter? I love the sweet vintage charm of it. And I feel it flows better than Louisa Elizabeth. I know a smoosh would be inevitable if people say her full name quickly, ie Loubet, Ouisabeth, etc., but how often do we all use full names in daily life anyway?
So I guess I'm asking, does Louisa Beth a) sound better to your ears than Louisa Elizabeth, and is it b) an fine choice, or would we be setting ourselves up for endless smooshing frustrations - or mistakes for assuming that Louisa Beth is one first name a la Mary Beth? I actually don't mind the smooshes much; they turn out to be kind of cute nicknames. But in general we would be using Louisa in full. Initials would be LBT. We also pronounce it with a soft S and not Z, which I know may necessitate many corrections, at least in the beginning. I believe most people default to the Z pronunciation when spelled this way and S when spelled Luisa.
