    I like both but i would have pronounced Rhys incorrectly if i saw it for the first time on paper. Itll get misspelled and pronounced wrong but if that dosnt bother you then either is nice.

    I like both of them quite a lot. I think Rhys and Leo go together really really well though. Usually I prefer Rhys as a MN, and think Augustin Rhys would be a spectacular name, but with Leo Alexander I think Rhys Augustin would be even better.

    I prefer Rhys. I think it is a very handsome name. I don't know where you are from, but here in the North East I don't think it would be butchered. Plus Johnathan Rhys Meyers is becoming more well know, so with it being in his name I don't imagine many people would have an issue with pronunciation.

    I really like both, so I sympathize with you. Rhys is reserved as a middle name for me, as I love the LOOK of it and how it sounds with longer first names (eg. Augustin Rhys), but like--do not love--the SOUND of it on its own. Before you see it, it just sounds like Reese which to me is a lot less attractive. THere's a lot in spelling!

    That said, Rhys Edward is very handsome. As is Augustin Theodore. And both Leo & Rhys and Leo & Gus are perfect.

    I guess alone I would vote for Augustin, but with Leo I would chose Rhys over Gus.
    Some current considerations:

    Sylvie Coraline | Etta Rosalie | Hazel Miranda | Margot Eliza | Vivienne Esme | Cora Madeleine
    Archer Daniel | Emmett Sebastian | Ezra Donovan | Theo Anderson | Lucian Matteo | Milo Vincent

    I much prefer Rhys. I've never liked any of the August names and I think Rhys goes much better with Leo.
