Both are great names. Samuel is a classic, Lev is more recent. It would depend on your taste... The names are SO different.

Samuel. Lev is pretty cool, but Samuel is such a strong, classic, and timeless name.

Samuel. I just feel it provides more options than Lev does, when he is an adult (i.e. Samuel can go by Sam, Mel etc. whereas Lev can only go by Lev really) Good luck - Samuel would be a lovely choice.

Wow thank you for all your comments. I kinda knew Samuel would be the more popular choice and they are very different; I'm torn between the two as they are both family names.

Also I do like that Samuel seems more accessible but maybe it's too common? We already know one couple in extended circle who named their kid that.
