Lois is a girl’s name of Greek origin. What can be said of this iconic name? Lois is short and simple but possesses mighty influence and status due to its pop-culture significance. Meaning “superior” and “most beautiful,” Lois first appeared as a name in the New Testament. Centuries later, keen comic book fans and superhero film-goers will attest that naming baby Lois is in deference to the magnificent Lois Lane, a fictional character and love interest to DC Comic’s Superman.
