I don't like either, but my taste doesn't matter here.

Have seen a few of your threads now - which one do you prefer?

Have you considered Dean?

I'm really stuck I love Deon but I feel it's too bold!

Deon makes me think of Dionne Warwick. Prefer Levi.

Levi James

Deon James. (Levi James is very close to Levi Jeans!)

I knew a Dejean and thought he had a really cool name!

I went to school with a dion pronounced dee-on wasn't seen as a bold name, I like it!

Definitely Deon (but I prefer the Dion spelling). Very cool name.

Levi is a character from the Old Testament, patriarch of one of the Twelve Tribes of Israel.
Dion comes from Dionysus, the Greek god of wine. wine

Levi definitely

Neither, but if my arm was twisted, it would have to be Levi. Even if I liked Deon as a name, I'd probably avoid it with that spelling because he'd spend his life being called Dean.

Deon/Dion, but Levi is nice too.

There's a Dion in Shakespeare. He's a Sicilian lord.

Def Levi! We have a Levi Jack who is 1! Everyone loves his name x

James is a much better name, it transcends class and will never date. Use the " trendy" name as a middle. He'll thank you for it.

Dion James is a famous American baseball player. Not sure if you think that's a good thing or bad thing.

I don't see either of those names as 'trendy'. I know 2 Levi's, one in his 20's and one 40 something. Dion's I know are both in their 30's and I know a 40y old Dionne.

Deon James.

Levi is great but it's really popular here.
