You're right: it's legitimate here in Brazil; and more common than the Portuguese spelling Luísa.

I actually really like this alternative spelling, although I would probably still opt for Louisa. It seems to make a difference when a spelling is legitimate - used elsewhere in the world - as opposed to "invented". Many, if not most, made-up spellings look silly, but ones like this make the name seem fresh, when unfamiliar.
