Hm that got me thinking that the british have the word "loo" as slang for the toilet. So my guess is that it all comes down to pronounciation. And anything Loo, Lua related

As far as I know, 'lua' became slang for restroom in hawaii after portuguese explorers used it to ask for the bathroom,
hinting at the carving of a crescent moon often decorating the door.
