  • "My name is Lou and it is not short for Lewis. I was okay with my name, but after finding out how rare the name is, I kinda love it now. The only problem is when someone ask your name, they usually repeat the question because they heard 'who?' instead of 'Lou'--happened to me 3 times, so now I have to say my name loud and proud."
