Baby Name Poll: a Pretty 1St Name to Go with Louise...

Hi moms, I was wondering if you can help me with finding a name first name for a girl. The middle name will be Louise (my grandmothers name). I was thinking something like Ava Louise and my sister mentioned Ella Louise but I'm not so sure....

Thanks moms!

What can I do next?

I don't like the way Ella Louise flows... to many LLLLL's...

Ava Louise is nice.

I do agree with the poster that said a more traditional name probably matches up best with Louise. I also think a 2 syllable first name sounds nice with Louise. I like:

Anna Louise
Sarah Louise
Emma Louise
Dana Louise

Or three syllables:

Julia Louise
Thalia Louise
Andrea Louise
Maria Louise

Hmmm, for Louise I'd want something pretty classic, like Rebecca, Emma or Amelia. Good luck in choosing!

Ava, Ella, and Emma are way too popular these days.

Otherwise, I do like the names that end in an "a" sound to go with a middle name Louise: Clara, Nora, Sarah, Anna, Victoria

Katherine is also pretty.

Even before I saw anyone else's suggestions, I thought "Anna Louise" would be perfect. Pretty, classic, not trendy. Congratulations!

Emma Louise
Parker Louise
Peyton Louise
Sara Louise
Katherine Louise (Kate or Cate)

or Isabella?

It was my g-ma's middle name too, she has 2 Louise namesakes:
Sophia and Abigail.

If I had to pick between Ava and Ella, I would pick Ava. For the same reason as Lee P. stated.

My grandmother was Catherine Louise, so I'm partial to that, but I was also thinking (like several others) Emma. I do like Ava as well.

If you like the name Ella then maybe Emma Louise? That was there aren't so many L's. But I do love the name Ava. Sorry I didn't see everyone else's suggestions for Emma......great moms think alike!

Hope I don't come off as annoying. I just was thinking that people are not giving you a one name solution- just more choices, making it even harder to decide. Maybe, since most people call their friends by their first names, you should pick Ava or Ella based on which you prefer to call your daughter. Both sound fine with Louise, but really how often are you going to say the whole name after the birth announcement?

my niece is Jessica Louise. Her nickname has always been "Lu" or "Lulu".

Eva and Ella are very pretty!

My Older sister's middle name is Louise after our Grandmother as well. Ava is a very pretty name. I also like Emma Louise or Emery Louise.

Trust this much you will know the moment you see her what is right,

I like Sylvie Louise or Sarah Louise and Finna Louise.

I like ava. I like Emma too, Ella Louise is too many l's for me, but an e name would give her the initials ELM, right? I also like anna, Harper,Kathryn, Lauren, Madeline, Naomi, Olivia, Rebecca, Samantha, sofia/sophia/sophie, taryn, Veronica, Victoria. Congrats!

Ann Louise
Anna Louise
Mary Louise
Megan Louise
Ivy Louise

Ava is pretty with Louise. My first choice would be Mary Louise. My next choice would be Inga Louise.

D. Louise Perfect name) that's my name.

Well,, my middle name is Louise, so IMO, M. Louise works pretty well! My best girlfriend named her youngest Olivia Louise, so that's another option, too!

ETA--I've always read that you're supposed to try to switch it up with the number of syllables between first, middle & last names which I think is probably why I prefer a 3-syllable first name with a 2-syllable middle or vice versa. Just a thought.

I love, love, love Ella Louise. Rolls off your tongue and sounds so feminine. Great choice!

Funny you say Ava and Ella. I was going to say "Emma."

I also like:
Samantha
J.
Sarah
Alexandra
Shannon
Allison
Sienna

I like Emma, Sarah, or Claire

When I first read your post I thought of Emma Louise right away but I know that many ppl have already suggested it - Smart Mamas =)
I think that any name that ends with an A sounds really pretty and seems to flow well together
Good Luck and Congrats

Charlotte Louise?
Tara Louise?
Erica Louise?

My name is M. Louise, I've always thought it was very pretty.

Good Luck,

M

Prior to even reading the entire post my first thought was Ella Louise. I also love love love Emilia Louise!
