Really just like to know your opinion, really struggling with boys names...

I like Lewis, was considering that as a middle name. What about Ethan, Jack, Finlay? I'm struggling a bit with boys names too! I love Benjamin but DH didn't like a Ben in school dammit! smile

Depends where you are. In Scotland it's been done to death. Still a nice name though smile

I like it. However, I am more inclined towards Louis (pronounced Lou-ee).

Lewis is nice, though smile

It's fine, perfectly good name smile

I really like Lewis.

I know a Lewis, aged about 7. It was a joke at their parent's wedding that their children would be called John and Lewis as that was their mother's favourite shop. Guess they must have thought "actually, that's a nice name." I like it.

It's very popular round here, and a couple of the Lewises I know aren't very nice kids, which has put me off.

My DS's friend is called Lewis. He's 7 and a lovely, bright and polite boy. I really like the name because of this, and also like Louis.

Lots and lots in Glasgow.

Like it..

OutragedFromLeeds Fri 17-May-13 19:42:33

It's ok, but I prefer Louis (Loo-ee)

LovelyMarchHare Fri 17-May-13 19:43:22

thanks to a silly friend, whenever I heard the name Lewis I then say it in my head like Inspector Morse

eg (in very deep tone) LOOOOOOOWIS (going up slightly at the end)

juvenile I know and I wouldnt let that put you off

Thanks so much for your responses! Its really interesting.

Well, I'm Australian (living in England) and Ive never met a Lewis in my life! And no plans to move to Scotland either.

Its funny how names or connatations with names stick!

Pobblewhohasnotoes Fri 17-May-13 20:37:29

It's everywhere. Way too popular.

Love it. Had a lovely uncle with the name who I remember fondly. Would have loved it for one of my dc's but it sounded a bit odd with our surname.

bananaramma Fri 17-May-13 22:22:15

I like Lewis - good strong solid name, easy to pronounce (unlike Louis which some people prefer to pronounce the French way, Lou-ee).

ShadowStorm Fri 17-May-13 23:26:47

Like it.

PopUpWorkshop Fri 17-May-13 23:33:02

It's chavvy.

edwardrocks Fri 17-May-13 23:35:43

We called ds2 Lewis. I love it. He is called Lou Lou or Louie for nicknames.

edwardrocks Fri 17-May-13 23:36:47

I still struggle to understand how a name can be chavvy.

themilkmonster Sat 18-May-13 00:14:10

It's my nephew's name. He's 16. It's popular for a reason, it's a nice name!

PattieOfurniture Sat 18-May-13 00:16:58

I like it. Our ds mistakenly gets called Lewis a lot and strangely it happened this evening smile his name is quite similar sounding.

SPsCliffingAllOverMN Sat 18-May-13 00:17:41

Yes extremely chavvy. Only Benedict will do grin

My brother is a Lewis. Hes nearly two and suits him. If you like it go for it. Doesn't matter what some people on the internet say
