Lois a super name for a baby girl
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.
GIRL POWER: A woman with the surname Clark is concerned that naming her baby girl Lois may be too “Superman-y”.
