Help! How to get to ‘Lou’

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] lovelies :blush: so our baby due in a few months is definitely a girl and we are definitely feeling ‘[name_u]Briar[/name_u]’ as her first name.
After some of your lovely suggestions ‘[name_f]Louisa[/name_f], [name_f]Lucille[/name_f],’ etc we’ve decided on a middle that can shorten to [name_u]Lou[/name_u] so our little one can be a [name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_u]Lou[/name_u] as a pet name.

Unfortunately [name_f]Louisa[/name_f] is out as it clashes with our surname and I’m not a fan of [name_u]Louise[/name_u]. I do like [name_f]Lucille[/name_f]! But was wondering if what other ways people have to get to ‘[name_u]Lou[/name_u]’?

Thanks berries :cherry_blossom::blush:

[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_u]Lou[/name_u] is adorable! It’s too bad that [name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Louisa[/name_f] clashes with your surname, although I do adore [name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Lucille[/name_f]. [name_m]How[/name_m] about:

[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Lucinda[/name_f]
[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Luella[/name_f]
[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_u]Luca[/name_u]
[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Luana[/name_f]
[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Lullaby[/name_f]
[name_u]Briar[/name_u] Lucelia
[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Lucienne[/name_f]
[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Luna[/name_f]
[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Lumina[/name_f]
[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Angelou[/name_f]
[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Lourdes[/name_f]
[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Eloisa[/name_f]


Ooh some gorgeous suggestions! Had never thought of [name_f]Angelou[/name_f]- nice!

I like the sound of [name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Luella[/name_f] or [name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Lucy[/name_f]. [name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_u]Lou[/name_u] is such a sweet name. :yellow_heart:

[name_m]How[/name_m] about just [name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_u]Lou[/name_u]? I think that’s gorgeous! Otherwise I’d go with [name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Luella[/name_f], [name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Lucia[/name_f], [name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Lucienne[/name_f] or [name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Eloise[/name_f]. Another option could be [name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_u]Lux[/name_u] (or is it a bit of a stretch?).

I do love [name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_u]Lou[/name_u] on its own too! I was wondering if it maybe felt too ‘tacky’ somehow :thinking::thinking: also having a strong middle that’s not so unusual works well with a first name that’s very unique I think! [name_f]Hope[/name_f] that makes sense

Most of mine have been said, but I’ll add…

[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Lilou[/name_f]
[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Malou[/name_f]
[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Milou[/name_f]

[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_f]Lois[/name_f]?
