  • "I am a Lesley and I love my name. I think it looks and sounds pretty, and although I prefer the unvoiced "s," it doesn't bother me when people use the "z" sound. I also don't get upset when people spell it Leslie (more common in the U.S.), but I prefer the "y"! I don't think "Lesley" or "Leslie" is very popular these days, but that's a shame. Maybe it will come back in a generation or two?" May. 26, 2017: Report as inappropriate
