Default Question About the Name Louis

for everyone who is named louis, are all of their names always pronounced as loo-ii, or are their names sometimes pronounced as loo-iss?

Everyone I've ever known with the name it's loo-iss and loo-ii is more like a nickname

I think it depends on where the person is from

I know someone named Louis, he is from portugal and his name is pronounced as loo-ii

There is also a Canadian heritage site called Louisburg with the same pronounciation which was a French military fort

I think it is most commonly spelled as Luis if it is going to be pronounced that way, but it's not unheard of to include the o

Did this come up because you're playing Code Vein? I know they pronounce it Lou-ii in that game, but I couldn't help but read it as Lou-iss every time.

It's pronounced both (or either). Louis Armstrong went as both LouEE and LouIS. King Louis XIV was LouEE.

Good heuristic:

French, Welsh, or otherwise European: LouEE always
American: Louie is LouEE. Louis is LouIS.

American = North American. Canada adopts this pronounciation.

Unsure about Quebec though.

Sorry, my bias shone through. I meant USA specifically. Can't speak for Canada or South America. I would guess French speakers use "LouEE" for themselves, but maybe "LouISS" when talking about people who go by "LouISS"

Default Re: Question About the Name Louis

The lou-wee etymology is of french influence/heritage. The variants stem from the old frankish name Hlōdowik "equivalent to the modern forms Louis (French), Lodewijk (Dutch), Lewis (English), and Ludwig (German)", with those languages being roughly the inheritors of old frankish.

My guess is the Louis english pronounciation is a simplification of the Lewis form, probably a modern evolution, since the use of the latin pronounciation mostly referred to noble names, as you wouldn't translate or mispronounce them. Louie just being the UK invention for indicating the distinction. But this is all a broad assumption from my linguistic studies days, as is usually the case for the field, since there were no exact ressources to catalog and attest oral phenomenons.

As for Quebec we do pronounce it lou-wee, and we usually don't see any variant other than Louis, apart from surnames and other origins. Here's the rest of the world : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_(given_name)
