Louis has always been LOO-iss, to me and I'm English. I know that Louis in French is Loo-ee but I'm not sure about other European countries, I think in England US Louis would be pronounced like Lewis. And although I dislike the look of Louie and think it is very nickname-y, I think it would be better to use that if you want the Loo-ee pronunciation.Current Loves: Tobias Henry and Sebastian Keith

I used to pronounce it as Louie, because I went to primary school with a Louis prn Louie so that was what I was used to. However, one of my first year university flatmates had a friend who came over frequently called Louis prn Lewis so now I kind of alternate between the two. I believe Louie is the traditional French way of saying it, at least the French kings were Louis prn Louie anyway. Louis I think is kind of an Anglicisation of the name.
Personally, if I was naming, I'd go Lewis for that prn and Louis for Louie. Louie just looks too nicknamey to me in its spelling.
