To any vampire-loving friends who are confused about the "de" and "du" in Louis and Lestat's names, a quick explanation:
These last names function like "Robin of Locksley" or "Lawrence of Arabia". Pre-dating modern last names, people were identified most often by their parentage ("Martin son of John" or "Samuel Davidson") or in the case of land-owning nobility, by their land.
(Like how in Downtown Abbey Robert Crawley is the Earl of Grantham and often addressed as "Lord Grantham" but never as "Lord Crawley". He is associated with the land he owns--Lord Grantham is probably a shortened version of "Lord of Grantham", or in French "Monsieur de Grantham".)
The important part here is that French didn't drop the "of" in these titles. And these titles either referred to a place or family line. Therefore:
Lestat de Lioncourt = Lestat of [the family] Lioncourt*
Louis de Pointe du Lac = Louis of Peak of the Lake ("peak of the lake" being the name of the estate)
*Lestat's family name might well come from their coat of arms--a lion on the coat of arms could have turned into Lioncourt
So why all this context? Well it's interesting but because it brings me to grammar:
"de" = of
"du" = of the (this is a contraction of "de le")
So both Lestat's and Louis' names are followed by "de" to indicate who/what they are associated with. Louis then has "du" between pointe and lac because "peak of lake" doesn't make sense grammatically.
These little two letter words are easy to confuse especially if you don't know why they're different. Hopefully this helps!
tl;dr it's "Louis de Pointe du Lac/Louis of Peak of the Lake" and "Lestat de Lioncourt/Lestat of Lioncourt"
Happy writing and shipping!!

rewatching the scene in the pilot when Daniel remarks about the sun and asks Louis where his coffin is and Louis tells him “you’re standing in it” has such a heavier connotation now that we know 1) his memory has been tampered with by Armand and 2) that living in Dubai is not fully consensual/agreed upon
