Louis ("LOO-ee") gmv. Sophisticated and funky at the same time. Love it.

I use both pronunciations for Louis. I wouldn't use Louie as the full name spelling. Enough people know Louis as "LOO-ee" that one correction should do the trick.

Lewis always seemed more of a surname to me.
I know it's used as a fn a lot. Just not my preference. Good luck! :0)

Lewis for Lou-iss, Louis for Lou-ee. Lewis seems less "stuck up"/more modern.

Louis is sweet and fun, but also has a historical feel. Lewis is a tad dated to me.
Louie is fine and less likely to need pronunciation corrections, but just doesn't hold qutie the same appeal to me, like its been dumbed down slightly
