Meanings and history of the name Heloise: | Edit

Heloise is derived from the ancient Germanic name Hlutwig, meaning "famous warrior." This name was Latinized and shortened to Clovis by the French. Over time, the "c" was dropped and the "v" changed to a "u", creating the name Louis. Sometime during this progression, the feminine Latin form Louisa was changed to Louise, and eventually a number of variants were created, including Heloise and Eloise.

French form of Eloise.
Pronounced: HEH-loh-ees, EL-oh-eez; French. ey-law-EEZ
