More about Loie

Hi Jennifer,

I saw that someone was asking about the name Loie. My mother’s cousin is named Loie, pronounced Loy, rhyming with boy. She was born in northern Florida in the 1940s from Cuban and British ancestry. Not sure if that would have an effect on the pronunciation. Also, in her instance, her name isn’t short for anything. Just thought I would throw out another pronunciation option! Thanks and love your site!
