Definitely Lewis, dislike Hayden, sorry.
How about Lewis Hayden.

Very similar genre of names: dislike both!

Congratulations! flowers

I am a big fan of the name Lewis. Definitely would go for that.

Lewis. I dislike all the Hayden/Jayden/Kaiden names. I like a nice solid Scottish name.

They are the names of two little boys I know who are bullies and badly behaved at school and I wouldn't recommend either, personally.

Sorry, that came across more blunt than I meant it to. Lewis is much nicer, especially if there is a Scottish link.

Lewis. Don't like Hayden at all.

Congratulations. Honestly though? They are both names that teachers dread seeing in their register. Are there any other names you like?

Littlelegs19 Fri 10-Mar-17 04:19:54

Ah congratulations!

Umm... I know both a Lewis and a Hayden and unfortunately they aren't great people so I can't get excited about either name I'm afraid but if I was to pick it would be Lewis

I know a few people called Lewis (all Scottish) and definitely don't think of it as the same sort of genre as Hayden. Maybe it is in England? I live in England now but was in Scotland before. Anyway, I much prefer Lewis as I think of it as a solid, Scottish name as a pp said.

I like Lewis!

ToastVacuum Fri 10-Mar-17 10:25:34

I prefer Lewis of the two.

Do you like Aidan? I prefer it to Hayden and Lewis.

Congratulations. flowers

I know some lovely boys called Lewis so don't let people put you off. Teachers don't 'dread' seeing names in my experiences.

BlueChampagne Fri 10-Mar-17 12:26:14

Like Lewis and second the suggestion of Aidan. One name with geography and the other with history!

mum2be2boys Fri 10-Mar-17 12:49:08

I prefer Lewis, but also like previous suggestion of Aiden.

Ps, as a teacher I don't dread seeing any names in a register! I've taught children called both Lewis and Haiden, some lovely and some not so! The name doesn't influence the character in my experience!
