Liam Gallagher and Patsy Kensit have a son named Lennon, in honor of John Lennon.

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. :)
