    I love that neither are in the top 1000 but are regonizable. Nicknames would probably be Lu and Lulu.

    What are the pros and cons of Louise? Louisa?
    My favourite is Louisa

    Both are lovely! Louise is very dainty and she sounds like a quiet choice. Louisa is also lovely she feels delicate and elegant. She has a lovely sound her 'ah' ending giving Louisa vibrancy.

    I would choose louisa. It sounds more french and evocative. No matter where you go world wide, louisa sounds pretty off the tongue. Here in the U.S. louise is a very southern name that is said in an AWFUL NASAL manner. Something like : Lou-Wayz, but simply by adding the A, it miraculously corrects everyone's speech. I'm wondering if each name provokes a certain image and that image adjusts the way the name is said. As I said, louise is very southern country women, and louisa is a slinky evocative french flapper girl. So I would choose Louisa. Hope this helps.

    Its funny that Louisa is seen as more "French" considering Louise is the French form of the name. I'm also surprised so many people prefer Louise, which I think I prefer as well.
    Current favorites:
    Cora . Louisa . Lydia . Mary
