I've always loved the name Lucas but it has become incredibly popular and recently I met the very cool 9 month old smile son of Scandanavian friends, called Leon. It struck me as an equally classic but kinda cool alternative. Which name would you prefer on a baby boy?

I like them both but would probably go for Leon of the two.

Both gorgeous! Leon is certainly the less-popular of the two, though I don't know of any DC with either name (I know two boys called Luca, though).

Leon, Lucas too close to mucus!

Two Lucas' in DS2 class alone. Prefer Leon ( although not overly keen on that). Luke is similar and far more classic IMO.

I strongly dislike them both, sorry.

I know a few boys called Lucas under the age of 5. I don't know any Leon's but I do know a lot of Leo's!!! Prefer Leo to Leon but Leon is nicer than Lucas!

Lucas by a mile.

I prefer Leon, as Lucas sounds quite harsh to me (Luca is lovely though).

Lucas defiantly but prefer Luca.

Dislike Leon a lot.

I prefer Lucas. Leon reminds me of that rubbish X Factor winner Leon Jackson from ages ago.
