Post subject:  A few questions about Sunday in the park

I've been listening only to Sunday in the park for a few weeks now ;) and I asked myself a few questions which I hope you will help me answer.
1) Do you think there is any meaning behind the similitude in the names of Louis and Louise?

2) Why do George never use exactly the same words each time he says "order, design, composition etc..."

3) English is not my mothertongue so I'm not sure about the meaning of "long" in "oh Georgie, how I long for the old view" in "Beautiful". I had the feeling that "to long" can only be used for something in the future, like I can say "I long for an ice cream", but not "I long for the ice cream I had yesterday". If I am right, that would mean that "I long for the old view" is a very interesting line that explains about the role of art and so on. If I am wrong, that line just means that she misses the landscape as it was before. Can you tell me exactly how "to long" is used here?

Oh and
4) What exactly do these lines "Louis has to bake his way, George can only bake his..." in "Everybody Loves Louis" mean?

"long" means to yearn for..to miss.

bake his way... in other words each must create according to their gifts and their own rules.

I understood that. But what does it mean in context? I mean Dot is explaining why it is better for her to go with Louis than with George. As this line is the last, it must be a really powerful argument. I don't get how this helps her to chose.

George's wya is erractic and unstable..Louis offers security and normalcy.
