Wouldn't use any of the others but love that one

1 Luke - simple and.classic is always the best.
2 Lucas - ok if a bit faddy.
3 Louis - I think people will be unsure whether to pronounce it Louie or Lewis.
4 Lewis - very faddy, too surnamey, don't like.

My current favourite is Luke. Dp loves Lewis, which bar Louis is my least favourite. I do like them all but I have an issue with the constant spelling of Lewis/Louis

1. Luke - simple and.classic is always the best.
2. Lewis - Scottish island, quite like
3. Louis - not keen, sounds weak
4. Lucas - quite effeminate and much fussier than Luke

Louis (pron Loooouie) Was on shortlist for DS2
Luke also good.

girliefriend Thu 20-Oct-11 19:50:15

I don't like Luke or Lucus as sounds like puke (I know that is ridiculous but thats what I think when I hear the name.)

I like Louis smile

babybumblebeee Thu 20-Oct-11 19:51:20

Luke = Puke
Lucas = Mucus

Louis (pronounced Louie) my very favourite. <Biased>

Lucas nice too.

mogandthecat Thu 20-Oct-11 20:58:40

Luke, definitely.

Not keen on others - Lucas v trendy and always reminds me of mucus; Louis again trendy, will have to keep correcting the pronounciation and bit poncey if you are not French.

I think Louis is lovely (Louis Armstrong, Louis De Bernieres etc), Lewis is (I think) essentially the same name but anglicised.

Luke is too biblical for me.

Lucas is nice but now I have associated it with mucas...

Use the German spelling: Louie to avoid pronunciation issues.

Lucus. Can call child Lucas or nn Luke.

Montsti Fri 21-Oct-11 12:14:10

I like all bar Lewis, but agree with some of the others that Luke and Lucas remind me of puke and mucus...not sure about Louis - some days I love it and others find it a bit yuck..

What about Luca?

marsiay Fri 21-Oct-11 12:44:36


I love this name

WaftyCrank Fri 21-Oct-11 16:21:43

Love Luke, I wanted it for DS but it's DP's name so it's DS's middle name.

I like Lewis and Lucas is ok. Louis is nice but I prefer Louie.
