Hey guys!
Lenny is short for Leonhard/Leonard, Donnie is short for Donovan. I just want to ask for some opinions on the listed names above, would be really helpful.

Donovan is lovely but really don't like Kai or leonard

Really not keen on Kai.

Hate Kai (footballer wannabe name) and Donovan (dated).

Have you considered Balonz?

Kai is quite class specific where I live, if that bothers you?
Donnie sounds very American to me.

Lenny makes me think Of Mice and Men. As nippers we'd call someone a Lenny if they were a bit of a numpty.
I like Donovan.

I think Kai has had its moment

Don't like Lenny

Almost anything but Kai.

Lenny is lovely

Donovan and especially Kai are lacking in imagination (and class)

The Kai's that have been in my class have generally been a bit naughty, and people do judge on a child's name how they will be (unfair but true), so I'd stay away from Kai. Leonard is nice and traditional and Donovan is unusual which I like.

I always wonder how Scandinavian parents who give their son the traditional name 'Kai' feel when they see how British people feel about it. I think it is a nice name if someone has a Scandinavian or German background.

I prefer the spelling Cai.

I like Kai but not the others

Not really my taste but Lenny probably the better of the 3. When is your baby due? Is this your first? Hope all goes well.
