Does [name_u]Lou[/name_u] work for a child of any gender or is it more masc or femme leaning?

What are some middle name options that would pair well with the first name [name_u]Lou[/name_u]?

[name_u]Lou[/name_u] sounds completely unisex to me, I wouldn’t assume either way if I met a child with this name.

I don’t know what kind of middle name you’re looking for, but here are a few random ideas:

[name_u]Lou[/name_u] [name_u]Piper[/name_u]
[name_u]Lou[/name_u] [name_u]Aberdeen[/name_u]
[name_u]Lou[/name_u] [name_u]Meridian[/name_u]
[name_u]Lou[/name_u] [name_u]Polaris[/name_u]
[name_u]Lou[/name_u] [name_u]Zephyr[/name_u]
[name_u]Lou[/name_u] [name_f]Sunday[/name_f]
[name_u]Lou[/name_u] [name_u]November[/name_u]

[name_u]Lou[/name_u] [name_f]Myrtle[/name_f]
[name_u]Lou[/name_u] [name_f]Rosemonde[/name_f]


[name_u]Lou[/name_u] feels usable for any gender to me - I wouldn’t know if I saw it just written down.

For middles, I’ll do a mix of unisex, more masc and more fem:

[name_u]Lou[/name_u] [name_u]Cadence[/name_u]

Personally it leans feminine to me but that’s because the only ones I’ve known have been Louises who shortened to [name_u]Lou[/name_u].

but I’m aware there are a few male names that can be shortened to Lou/Lu

Definitely unisex, however, I’d think that some people may ask what its short for frequently enough.

[name_u]Lou[/name_u] feels very unisex! If I just heard it, I might assume it was a nickname for a little girl, but as a full name it is very neutral, and I wouldn’t be surprised either way.
