My mom must have been ahead of her time. I was named after my grandmothers Mary and Louise. My family has called me MaLou for the last 50 plus years. The only other Malou's that I have know where from Latin America and were Maria Guadalupe and Maria Luz

Is it mal, like pal? Or muh-loo? Either way, it's pretty to look at but I don't love the pronunciation.

I'm intrigued with all these French names ending in the U sound. So unexpected and fresh.
