A famous bearer of the name was Lt. General Lewis "Chesty" B. Puller. The most heavilly decorated marine in history.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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 in my opinion is the sexiest and handsomest name in the whole wide world ever.

I like it. It's popular in the UK and hope it catches on in North America.

This name is fairly common in the United States.

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