(pronounced Loo-EE) -- the first syllable rhymes with loot -- and the accent is on the last syllable.
-- It is French.
-- It is a male name (and a Royal Name, at that) as in Emperor (or King) Louis XIV (the 14th) of French Revolution fame.
It is not pronounced like Lewis (LOO-iss) -- which is an English name.
It is also not pronounced like: Louie (LOO-ee) -- which is an Italian name.
I know this because my first and middle names are:
Louis Etienne (A-Tee-EN)
Lois (LOW-iss) and Louise (Loo-EEZ) are similar Female names.
By the way, Etienne is also a French (male) name which means: Steven.
Good Luck!
