  • "I just named my new son Leo. I love its sound, its meaning (lion in latin), the simplicity of it. I chose it because I do not know of any other Leos and I hope it remains an uncommon name. Most people don't know how to react when I tell them his name, and I have been asked why I chose that name, is it a family name? (No, it is not). Just a name we love!" Jun. 11, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "A great and ancient name, and universal in its use. The name of saints, popes, kings and emperors. Almost all European nations and nations claiming European ancestery use the name. You don't meet many Leos often. Maybe with the popularity of Leonardo DiCaprio ( often called "Leo" for short)the name will catch on again. I like my name very much!"

  • "Our Leo is two years old. We chose this name because it has the class and dignity of a well-established proper male name, it's simple to spell and pronounce, and it's familiar without being overused. We find most people react to his name positively, with a kind of pleasant surprise, since it is not a random surname and doesn't end in 'aden' I suppose. We've also heard some decidedly negative reactions, but mostly from people who have demonstrated questionable taste in many other areas, so we generally take their disapproval as a compliment." Apr. 26, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "My son's name is Leo. He is only 7 months old, but we get so many compliments on it. It's just an adorable name and I know he will be in school with many Will's, Charlie's, Eli's, Abe's, etc. I think his name will fit right in." Mar. 1, 2007: Report as inappropriate
