  1. It’s a strong, classic name. A bit old fashioned but cute for a little boy too. Explorers Lewis & Clark and famous Christian writer C.S. Lewis come to mind.

  2. We wanted a name that wasn’t unheard of but still unique. Lewis fit this criteria perfect. Lew for short, it suits him very well.

  3. When I first heard this name I stopped in my tracks. I like strong names for boys but I felt like some of my favourites that had been on my list for years were becoming more popular.

    Besides being a strong name, I like that it is easy to say and spell.
