"Hej jeg er også en Louisa. Jeg er 15 år nu. Mange jeg har mødt har ofte troede jeg hed Louise, så det er jeg blevet kaldt mange gange. Især af min mormor.Da jeg var mindre kom hun hele tiden til at kalde mig for Louise, til sidst lavede hun en bødekasse for sig selv. Så hver gang hun sagde Louise skulle jeg have penge. Hun mistede rigtig mange penge på det, så det til sidst måtte stoppe. Nu kalder hun mig det ikke mere. :)Jeg synes selv at Louisa er et ret smukt navn, og synes det er sjovt at se så mange der alle sammen hedder Louisa på denne side." Mar. 28, 2011:
