Lewis is an old family name in my family. A great grandfather was "Louis", but my father and brother are "Lewis". We have both sides covered, LOL.

Lewis is also the name of a Scottish isle in the Outer Hebrides (which might explain its popularity in Scotland). The Isle of Lewis is part of Lewis and Harris (one of the largest populated islands) and is quite apart from Scotland as it retains a lot of traditional Scottish culture and history in its everyday. (The Lewis chessmen were discovered on this island.)

The name of Lewis as an island is thought to be Norse or Gaelic, probably meaning "marsh".

Lewis is not pronounced "Loo-is" as you state.
"Is" is pronounced "iz".
Lewis is pronounced "Loo-iss", the "iss" as in "hiss".

Lewis Powell (1844-1865) attempted to assassinate Secretary of State to Abraham Lincoln, William H. Seward. He was an associate of John Wilkes Booth. On the same night of President Lincoln's assassination, Lewis infiltrated Seward's house and stabbed him in the face several times. Seward was wearing a jaw splint from a carriage accident, so he did not die. Powell also severely injured two of Seward's sons, a soldier guarding Seward, and a messenger. He was executed on July 7, 1865 with three others for their conspiracy.

Lewis is the main character in my current favorite movie, "Meet the Robinsons." His design is based on the nameless character in William Joyce's book, "A Day with Wilbur Robinson," who tells the story of the Robinson family in first-person through the eyes of Wilbur's best friend. Disney came up with the name Lewis when they converted the book to a movie.

I love this name. I prefer this spelling of Lewis to Louis. But I quite like both. I prefer Lewis as a middle name because I think that it makes many names in a name combo flow well.

Grossly popular in England, Wales, Scotland and even Ireland! Not too popular in US though. Which I was shocked to see.

Lewis is a very beautiful name and I think it also sounds royal. It is a name I would give my son. It is also the name of Laura Ingalls Wilder's great-grandfather and is also the middle name of several of her relatives.

One of my least favorite names ever. The "Loo" sound at the beginning is just so gross-sounding.
