    Both are great names, and you can’t go wrong with either of them. I still voted August since my middle name is Augusta (and it’s my birth month).

    August is a wonderful name that we considered for our son. August gets my vote. Additionally, Lewis strikes me as a surname while Louis is a first name in my mind.

    I like them both. I really wanted to name my baby Augustus if she was a boy, so I vote for August!

    I voted for August. Lewis reminds me of the snivelling little a$$hat from Suits lol

    Lewis seems a little dated to me but would be unique for his age group. I’ve never met a Lewis under 40. That being said, I know 3 Augusts under the age of 4 so he might have a few friends with the same name. 

    I voted August because it sounds cuter.

    I like both names and was leaning toward August but I’ve heard it becoming more popular recently so I voted for Lewis. As long as it’s not going to be Louis and pronounced “loo-wee” like the new Cambridge baby, I think it’s a great name.

    I voted August but I really like Lewis! I have only met one Lewis who is fairly young (by young I mean 25ish) so it would definitely stand out amongst all of the Theodore’s and Oliver’s.

    I love that name August. And Augie would be a cute little nickname.

    They’re both great names.  Personally, I like Lewis, especially because I like the nickname “Lou.”

    I voted Lewis because August is not a name I’ve heard of where I’m from so it doesn’t roll off the tongue easily.

    I voted for August because I actually know a kid named Lewis and he is a lot of work haha sorry…also I used to work with a guy named August and he was lovely. I guess my opinions on baby names are heavily influenced by knowing other people by those names!
