----Lois was a popular baby name in the United States during the first half of the 20th century. Some notable women with the name include:

* Congresswoman Lois Capps

The most famous fictional woman to bear the name is probably Lois Lane, but in comedies, the name is often given to the lead mother character, for example:

* Lois Morgan in "Ellen"
* Lois in "Malcolm in the Middle"

Since 1992 Lois Maffeo has created music as leader of a musical group called "Lois".

In French, Loïs is a male name, as in the fictional comic strip adventures of "Loïs" Lorcey by Jacques Martin.
