Gender: F Meaning of Lilou: "lily" Origin of Lilou: Occitan pet form of French Liliane

Lilou is a charming, rarely heard import. Occitan is a language spoken in Provence, in the south of France, in which the suffix "ou" denotes a pet form — thus, Lilou as a short form of Liliane or its Occitan form Liliana or Liliano. Its popularity in France--where it's currently Number 12--can be traced to the 1997 film The Fifth Element.

Pronounced lee-loo, this is an enchanting option.
