Personal experiences with the name Lou: | Edit

My daughter's name is Lou and we love it. People usually ask us if it is short for something or if we named her after someone (like they can't believe we'd just name her Lou), but that doesn't bother me. The name fits her perfectly and what I like most about it is people never forget her name and she is the only little girl named Lou we've ever known!
