Lois a su­per name for a baby girl

Daily Mercury - - FAMILY LIFE -

WHEN choos­ing a baby name, most peo­ple are care­ful to avoid any­thing that re­minds them of an ex-boyfriend or school bully.

But when one woman re­vealed her po­ten­tial pick on Mum­snet re­cently, she re­vealed that it’s a much-loved su­per­hero that’s putting her off.

The mum-to-be ex­plained that she and her hus­band are keen on the name Lois.

But as their sur­name is Clark, she’s wor­ried that peo­ple will as­so­ciate their lit­tle one with Su­per­man and his part­ner Lois Lane.

As you’ll know, Su­per­man’s civil­ian name is Clark Kent.

The woman wrote: “Love the name Lois for a girl and [hus­band] does too but I am a lit­tle du­bi­ous as sur­name would be Clark. Too ‘Su­per­man-y’?”

Luck­ily for the woman, most Mum­snet users couldn’t see a prob­lem with the moniker.

One wrote: “It’s to­tally fine, they are both nor­mal quite com­mon names so I don’t see an is­sue at all. I really like Lois.”

Some ad­mit­ted that the name did re­mind them of Su­per­man, but they didn’t think it should put her off al­to­gether.
