Comments on Lewis:

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.

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