Would it be okay to name my baby boy Lewis Johnson? Johnson is our surname. Thanks!

PotteringAlong Tue 13-Dec-16 11:59:53

No. sorry.

PotteringAlong Tue 13-Dec-16 12:00:35

Ignore me!!! I was thinking Lewis Hamilton blush as you were...

AllieJ88 Tue 13-Dec-16 12:02:12

Haha! That's funny grin the problem I'm thinking of is John Lewis!

SirChenjin Tue 13-Dec-16 12:02:39

Why not? confused

PotteringAlong Tue 13-Dec-16 12:02:48

Definitely didn't get the John Lewis connection blush

SirChenjin Tue 13-Dec-16 12:03:28

Oh! No, definitely didn't get the John Lewis connection either grin

I'd never in a million years get the John Lewis connection. You're overthinking this OP grin

Awwlookatmybabyspider Tue 13-Dec-16 12:52:49

Sorry but the first things I thought was. That its practically a reverse of John Lewis.

Gruffalosfriend Tue 13-Dec-16 13:54:28

I think it's fine.

ReggieJones Tue 13-Dec-16 13:59:18

I wouldn't have got the connection

Sophronia Tue 13-Dec-16 18:22:42

It's fine

1horatio Tue 13-Dec-16 20:52:50

Wouldn't have thought of that. It's fine. Sounds nice. smile

WyfOfBathe Tue 13-Dec-16 21:06:15

I did think of John Lewis straight away. But I don't think it's an awful connection (it's not like being called Ann Summers, which I would definitely avoid grin).

DramaAlpaca Tue 13-Dec-16 23:47:15

It's fine.

CakeRattleandRoll Wed 14-Dec-16 00:03:42

I didn't get the connection at all. It's fine.

I immediately thought of John Lewis.

First thing I thought of. In fact when I saw the thread title I momentarily wondered why there was a thread about John Lewis in the baby name section. TBF my reading comprehension isn't that great 😂

Actually I think you could use it. They are both classic names and they go well together. There are already lots of actual John Lewis's of the none store kind out there.

Well, My mother and father did this and, they lived very happy lives. :0

FatherNoelFurlong Mon 19-Dec-16 02:04:35

No. Im in Ireland and I instantly thought of john lewis and we dont even have John Lewis here.

Wouldnt do Thomas Brown either!

hoddtastic Tue 20-Dec-16 12:34:05

Louis is nicer than Lewis, and wouldn't link to the dept store

I would never have gotten the John Lewis connection.
