"My boyfriends name is Leigh and he's super fine, he does like poetry and painting though, possibly homosexual???" Apr. 23, 2013:
"I'm a woman named Leigh. I love my name; yes, growing up in the 60s I often heard "that's a boy's name". Tough. It suits me and always did. impossible to get a nickname out of it - by mom's design - and I always wanted one. Yes, when we written, it is consistently mispronounced, and when spoken, it is nearly always misspelled. That's life." Jan. 11, 2011:
