Just that really!

1) Lewis
2) Gregor
3) Sebastian

Oh and if you’d like to say why you particularly like / dislike any of them, that would be lovely too

Sebastian-it's a great grown up name and Sebby/Seb are lovely nicknames.

I like Sebastian best. I live in Scotland and am surrounded by Lewis and Gregors.

Littlechocola Thu 14-Dec-17 14:51:35

Sebastian is the only one I like sorry

I strongly dislike Gregor. I don’t like hard G sounds and I find it really ugly.

Lewis...dislike. Not sure why. Prefer Louis.

BenLui Thu 14-Dec-17 14:53:29

I have multiple bad experiences with boys called Lewis, however this may just be because we know so many of them! (Also in Scotland)

The other two are lovely.

But Gregory is good too.

Lewis and Sebastian are lovely, never been keen on Gregor but go for what your guy tells you, I regret not going with my secret favourite for one of my dc.

I like Sebastian. I probably know more Sebastian's than any other name, but that wouldn't bother me.

fridaykitten Thu 14-Dec-17 14:55:29

Ahh....*gut not guy!!!!!!!!!

Lewis, but Gregory would move up to first place if you swapped it for Gregor.

Sebastian is my favourite. It’s a name that suits little boys & grown men alike and I also like the potential for shortening it to “Seb” or “Sebby”

I like Lewis, and indifferent about Sebastian.

I don't like Gregor, but only because (to me) the name sounds quite harsh and 'unfinished' (I always think of Gregory - which is a name I very much like).

ImAMarshmellow Thu 14-Dec-17 15:02:10

I'd go for Lewis.

Dislike Gregor. Looks like it should be Gregory and someone just forgot the 'Y'.
Dislike Sebastian... not sure why, i just irrationally dislike it

I like Lewis best by far.

Sebastian is nice but has been very popular in the recent past.

I'm not keen on Gregor, sounds like a member of the Russian mafia or a peasant in a Chekov play.

TatianaLarina Thu 14-Dec-17 15:45:02

Lewis is awful and a bit downmarket. Louis is nicer.

Love Sebastian or Gregor.

CaptainChristmas Thu 14-Dec-17 15:47:07

Thanks all for comments!

It definitely won’t be Louis, which we both dislike.

I have heard the ‘downmarket’ comment about Lewis before, so think that must be a thing in some parts of the uk..? Is it <whispers> a ‘naughty boy name’?

HoratioNightboy Thu 14-Dec-17 16:01:10

I like them in the order you've listed them OP.

I know about 30 Lewises, as it was one of the top two names here in Scotland for around 12 years. They're not "naughty" lads at all. My DS has two colleagues and three bosses named Lewis, all the way up to senior management. And my posh neighbour's dog is a Lewis. grin

Sebastian always seems a bit wet to me, but the only one I know of is Sebastian Coe and I always thought he was a right drip (even if he could run fast).

BenLui Thu 14-Dec-17 16:08:39

I don’t like the idea of a “naughty boy’s name” however out of all the many Lewis’s I know one is completely wonderful. The others are all more... challenging.

It may be regional but all the parents I know who have sons called Lewis would be completely appalled by the suggestion it was downmarket. smile

Lewis and Sebastian are very manly names.
