  • "Louis is phonetically beautiful. Neither too long nor too short to spell. It's a popular name, but not too popular that you end up with multiple persons with the same name in one class. It's used only for boys, so you'll not have people ask you whether you have a boy or girl after you give them the name of your child." Oct. 7, 2014: Report as inappropriate
