You ladies seem to be good with these types of requests, so I'm wondering if anyone can suggest full names for the nickname Lu (for a girl). I think Lu is a pretty cute little nickname - not something we would use exclusively but maybe just occasionally.
Lucy seems like an obvious choice, which I kind of like. I'm not a fan of Lucinda. I do like Louisa, but our kids are prone to asthma, so I don't want the nickname potential of wheezy.. haha.
Any other, less obvious ones - maybe ones that don't start with the "lu" sound but have it incorporated elsewhere?
I love Lou. One of my faaavorite boy's names is Louis and I'd call him Louie. Swoooooooon.
Okay, I totally love Lu or Lulu on a girl, too.
Luella, Lucia, maaaybe Eloise, Lucinda, Luna
I love Lou for a boy too!
Thanks for the suggestions.

A friend of mine, Laura, goes by Lu.
Couple other thoughts;
Luna (sort of "out there")
I'm with AK ^ I sometimes call my daughter Livi Lou.

I freely admit that I nearly suggested Cindy for Cindy Lou Who. :-)
Eloise was the first to come to mind. I also like the suggestion of Tallulah.
I nanny for a little girl named Lillian Louise, and we all call her LuLu.
