My boyfriend's name is Luis and I can't count how many times people pronounce it wrong even after he has told them what his name is! They usually call him Louis, and he'll let them because he figures it doesn't matter how many times he corrects them, they still won't get it right. It's very annoying.

My brother's name is Luis. Actually he's a junior and hated his name because of that. he'said that he felt like he didn't have his own identity. He hated being referred to as the "little one" or the "junior". he'said he'd much rather just have his own name. But I guess that's more about him being a junior than the actual name Luis. *shrug* Now he just goes by Lou.

08/04/2021 09:14:42

It's cool to be a 'Jr' and nice to know I'm first generation born citizen, but I despise my name most of the time. It's such an odd name that always gets pronounced 'Louis' but I'm honestly ok with that because I don't really like how 'Luis' sounds. It's just so iffy. Also, I don't think that name's attractive so It's a real bummer at times
