  • "My name is Lois. My father chose my name. He said he thinks it's the most beautiful name for a girl. I have always been asked "Where's Superman?" And when meeting people they frequently raise their voice to a high pitch to say the word "Hi" then drop their pitch very low and say (a shortened version of) my name "Lo". In high school I was given my roster. All the other girls had cooking and sewing classes, but I was assigned classes learning about automobile motors. I was the only girl in those classes. The following year when I was assigned those classes again, I went to a school counselor to complain. I was told a computer makes out the rosters, and the computer thought Lois was a boy's name. The counselor changed my class assignments. Nobody seems to know how to spell my name. They write Louise or Louis instead. When I am introduced to someone for the first time they often get a confused look on their face. When I see that look I automatically say "Like Superman's girlfriend, Lois Lane." They immediately understand." Dec. 2, 2021: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am lois. The name chosen lovingly by my dad..i was the only lois in elementary school. There were three of us in high school and I worked with a lois. All have been very nice and kind.

  • "I am LOIS:-) since 1966! While travelling abroad, I had a luggage crisis and happened to find a suitcase whose brand was named "Lois" It was very cool because it was printed on the outside of the bag! The misspellings and mispronunciations [Lewis, Louis, Louise]seem to have increased over time- prior to the 2000s most people I encountered could read, pronounce and, spell it without a problem! I have referenced the Superman - Lois Lane to help people get it! My maternal grandmother and aunt were also named Lois, and over the years, I have stumbled across a couple of ladies (my age) with the name." Aug. 8, 2021: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name, I am easily remembered. Although I am 60 yrs. old, born in 1060, I only knew one other Lois. I have met a Lois or two, but they were always a lot older than me. I was never bothered by people mis-pronouncing or mis-spelling it. When I did politely correct them, they got their life-long lesson. And....what is so wrong with being affiliated with Superman. Again, I am proud of my Biblical, unique, strong and unforgettable name. We need a lot more Lois?s walking this earth!" Feb. 21, 2021: Report as inappropriate

I have a sister name Louise so all the names I can be called is in my family. I Love my name I do not like to be like anyone else and Lois is unique and beautiful.

I lived in Philippines and my mom grab my name from the Bible. And having this name in the modern teenage world.

Plus, it is in the Bible so that's just bonus points on top for a Christian family. We have had a few silly people say "Louis?" but they just make themselves sound dumb so it doesn't bother me, I just correct them. The Lois Lane correlation doesn't bother us since we're a bunch of nerds anyway." Apr. 16, 2015: Report as inappropriate

Whenever I watch a movie or tv show, I always look at the credits at the end. There are many Lois' involved in film and television. I happen to be one involved in the arts - dance (teaching for 34 years). Besides Lois Lane of Superman, other well know Lois' are leading characters in the television shows "Malcolm in the Middle" and "Family Guy." When I was young I got teased alot with the Lois Lane jokes, but in general, the name comes with a lot of respect.

  • "Lois, like many popular names, has Greek origins. Its meaning has been translated to 'desirable' or 'superior.' Lois wasn't picked up by parents until the late 16th century in England. In the 1800s, American parents showed somewhat of an interest in Lois, but not nearly as much as they would a century later. Between 1900 and 1950, Lois was big in name popularity. Lois roared into the twenties with flappers, jazz and culture; perhaps the soldiers returning from World War I were fond of the name or new inventions pushed people to try out different names or maybe disregard for old customs was the cause. Whatever the reason, Lois reached its peak in the 20s. By the 1950s Lois was slowly losing favor with parents and by the 90s, the name had become a rarity, an ancient artifact worn almost exclusively by mothers and grandmothers.

I don't know how it happens, the Louise and Louis, but so many people add to the name and I don't understand it, Lois is a simple name, only four letters (like love) and it is spelled as it sounds. I get lolo, loisee and that is okay and I am married to a superman, really. Enjoy your name, it is not the letters that identify you, it is your actions, so make your name something really special, by being a great person and then Lois will be a name that means so much to so many."

It had a huge effect on my self esteem when growing up, knowing how badly my Mom hated it. I might feel differently if not for her attitude. Might even like it.

  • "My entire life has been a sea of mispronounciations with Lois. Even my English professor was unable to say it correctly! It got so bad that brother whose name is Roland just called me "Louise" and in return I called him "Ronald" My parent's stuck us both with confusing,old fashioned names. I absolutely loathed my name growing up, and never knew another Lois until in my thirties, and thought it was the most old fashioned name in the world. Now in my fifties I am finally warming up to my name and accept it for what it is, just too bad my middle name is May!!" Jan. 18, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I have been a Lois for 52 years, and for the first 18 years I hated it because I thought it was too old-fashioned. Also because I would get called Louis. by the time I was a young adult, I wanted to drop it at use my middle name, Kristen. My mom said that was fine, but first remember how much my father loved the name; so much so that my older sister is Rebecca Lois. I didn't want to hurt my Dad's feeling so I stayed a Lois. Now it doesn't matter to me about my name. In our town we have a "Lois" club that meets about 4 times a year for lunch and it's fun to be with others with the same first name. I'm happy to hear that little girls are being named Lois again. Maybe it will resurface as a popular name." Apr. 29, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My beautiful 7 year old daughter is caled Lois Sophia. We toyed with the idea of calling her Sophia Lois but Lois won because Sophia/Sophie is so popular. She is the only Lois in her school and I really think it suits her, I love it, so feminine and pretty and ageless too, it suits her now and will suit her when she's an old lady. I do it so annoyed though, it's four letters but everyone spells it wrong or calls her Lewis which I think is really ignorant but hey ho." Feb. 20, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Though this name is most often associated with Lois Lane from the Superman comic strips, it's not a bad name. I don't think I'll ever name my daughter Lois, but if for once I come across a little girl of this name, at least her name wouldn't be Ursa as in that Kryptonian villainess who, while played by Sarah Douglas in the second Superman film of 1980 (Margot Kidder played Lois Lane), was jealous of Lois and Superman's (Christopher Reeve) relationship when Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman) introduced Ursa, General Zod (Terence Stamp), and Non (Jack O'Halloran) to Lois, and Ursa said to Lois something like "What an undemanding male this Superman must be" before Lois then said something like "Yeah, and you could use the tuck here and there yourself, sister". So I definitely won't be choosing either Ursa (not really a name, more like a constallation, as in Ursa Major and Ursa Minor) or Lois for my daughter, even though as I said earlier, a name like Lois, while at the present time somewhat unpopular, would fit a child better than the name of that Kryptonian villainess would ever (in a million years) do!"

  • "Guess I'm not the only Lois named after an Uncle Louis. The only common mispronuciations I have noted is when folks of Italian or Spanish heritage call me Louisa; No problem as I think that is a beautiful name. In my childhood years I encountered so few girls sharing my name that I came to believe that I, "owned, " this name. At age 65 I have met a number of women named Lois, and on reflection I realzie that I am in good company : Lois, it would seem, is a name reserved for intelligent, compassionate women."

  • "The good- Lois is a UNIQUE and rare name in the place I live in. It means 'desirable' or 'famous in war' from the Greek. The bad- Many people mispronounce and/or misspell this name. People have made fun of my name, because with all four letters, you can spell 'soil' or 'oils' I've been told that I look more like an 'Ashley'than a 'Lois.' The ugly- 'Lois' is the name of the wife in the TV series family guy. I HATE family Guy, and I don't want to end up as a housewife! I haven't met much Loises my age. They've all been older than me. Lois Lane-what is up with her? Whenever I tell someone that my name is Lois, they always mention Superman. I am not a big fan of damsels in distress, therefore, I don't like the reference."
