Sorry Mriana, I confused Lois’s post with yours then went back and saw it was from you. As an aside, I don’t have any relatives named Lois, and the first time I heard that named used was in the TV show Superman back in the 50’s. Must have been a popular name then. Oh, wait a minute, I went to high school with a girl named Lois but that was in the 60’s. Since then, no Loises. Do you can?
Did you grow up in England where, in my experience, few seem familiar with the name Lois? Thats not the case with most Americans. Actually Lois is in the bible, in II Timothy, so it’s not new. The name had some popularity in the US the 1940s, I hear, though it’s never been a common name. You’re unlikely to find two Loises in the same room.
I was going to mention that Lois is in the Bile. In fact, my grandmother and her sisters, oldest to the youngest- Esther, Ruth (my grandmother), Lois, and Leah. See a pattern? Their father was a Baptist minister. Even their middle names were Biblical. My grandmother, born in 1913 was born Mary Ruth. When she filled out her birth certificate, years later, she changed it to Ruth Mary, because everyone called her Ruth. They all experienced a lot of “miracles”, including my mother being cured of breast cancer- the dr didn’t get credit, God did.
