I SO prefer this is to Louis.

Really love this name. Those comparing Louis should know they are very different names- Louis pronounced Lou-ie. This to me just sounds too twee for a boy. While Lewis sounds strong and unique to me, I love it.

I don't like this name. It is way too popular where I live and I have met many nasty, obnoxious boys called Lewis.

I think that the name Lewis is extremely sexy, strong and attractive in sound and overall a really smart and sophisticated name :)

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".

For the record, Lewis Carroll was a pedophile who took "dirty" pictures of the actual Alice...

I like both Lewis and Louis, I can't decide which one I like more!

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

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

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

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.

Middle name of Pete Wentz, guy from Fall Out Boy.

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.
