Lennon is a nice name for a boy. I read somewhere that Lennon is a English variant of Lenin. Lennon is Gaelic meaning little cape or Irish meaning lover.

This name has nothing to do with Lenin. Lenin was a nom de guerre, meaning "Man of Lena," a town in Siberia where he was exiled before his rise to power, similar to Stalin, meaning "Man of Steel."

I want to name my son Lennon. I am a huge John Lennon fan and would love to show it by giving my son his name. The modern meanings do mean little cloak or cape but the original name of Lennon, Ó Leannáin does mean lover which makes me adore the name even more. I even like the shortened version Len too. Great name!

If I have another son I would love to name him Lennon but I don't know that I will go through with it as I STRONGLY dislike the nickname 'Len'. Maybe I'll use it as a middle name instead.

It's cool that it's pronounced the same way as Lenin; Vladimir Lenin being the leader of the Great Soviet October Revolution.

My daughter's name is Lennon after John Lennon (my husband is a HUGE beatles fan) and we call her Leni. She loves it.

I find it annoying how popular this name has become. I guess it's because one of the annoying Gallagher brothers from the irritating band Oasis used this name for his son, and because I'm not really much of a fan of John Lennon anyway. Having said that, the name sounds okay, but it will always have its associations.

I think Lennon is a nice name and since I'm a Beatles fan, I would consider using it but only as a middle name.

I think this name works well for a daughter. I'm also a huge John Lennon fan, and I've always thought the name could be both masculine and feminine. If a girl were named Lennon, it would be different and spunky.

What a perfect meaning!

Great name. I'm a Beatlemaniac through and through, but naming my kid after John Lennon seems to cross the line into worship. So maybe a pet or something.

I would love to name my child this after John Lennon. Apart from that, I just like the name Lennon anyway. :)

My name is Lenin and I love it! Its nice not having to share a name with anyone in school, but I can never find anything with my name on it!:(

I LOVE the name. I named my son Lennon in 2014, however 1st heard it as a first name in 2010! It's definitely a unisex name... No, real love for the Beatles, but it didn't stop me from using and loving the name.

Sounds like Lenin, which isn't the greatest namesake. Looks good on paper, though. It's better for a book character.

My name would have been Lennon, after John Lennon, if I (born 1983) were a boy. So to honor my mom I decided when I was a little girl that if I ever had a boy I would name him Lennon. Fast forward to 2015 and we have our Lennon! Love the name! It's a strong name, but playful as well.

We named our daughter Lennon in 2014. Love it! Never considered John Lennon in the process however. My father's name is Leonard so one day we were playing with different ways to incorporate his name. I ended up watching the tv show Nashville and saw the opening credits for one of the singing duo sisters, Lennon Stella. Fell in love the second I saw it!

We named our son Lennon in 2013. No one, and I mean NO ONE, is to call him Lenny. We do call him Len, though. He's an adorable little boy with pink cheeks and shaggy brown hair. I loved the name long before my husband and I met, so there was little democracy when it came to naming our son (he did get to pick his middle name, and of course, we both have his last name). I liked it for its classic yet modern feel... and also because I love the Beatles. I found out that it is derived from the Gaelic name Leannan which means love, or lover, after deciding on the name when I was pregnant, but that just made me love it all the more.

I like this name for either a boy or a girl. Just in my opinion I like it more for a girl, it’s not too boy-ish or girl-ish, it’s a perfect name for a boy or a girl.

I named my son Lennon back in 2007, it seems to have gained a lot of popularity as a first name. I'm a huge Beatles fan, I prefer Lennon over McCartney and anyone could be a John, so I chose Lennon. My family has a lot of musical talent and I hope he follows up in that field, if not that's okay too. He's such a good boy. Anyways, my 2 cents.
