"I was named Leon - (Lee-on) after my father, then my sister named her son the same. I rearly don't think about the name much. I've had people that I have't seen in a long time want to call me Leo, Le'ron or lenny. When I was in my teens this one guy always wanted to call me Lennen for some reason." Feb. 12, 2011:
