    Louis pronunciation?

    For me being European... I always pronounce Louis as Louie... And assumed everyone else did the same!! However, I've noticed that on nameberry a lot of people pronounce Louis as Lewis? I'm wondering how you pronounce Louis where you're from? Also, I'm considering using Louie to avoid pronunciation issues but then I feel the name losing some of its history and charm!! What do you think... Louis or Louie?

    I think in the U.S. Louis is generally Lewis. Louis as Louie seems to be the French influence... so I think we Anglicized it.

    Louis is LOO-ee to me, and everyone I know by that name has pronounced like that. But it may be an Englishy thing. Liking Louis though!
