  • "My son is Lionel. We call him Leo as a nickname. Considering changing it to just Leo as everyone loves it and they don?t ever call him Lionel because they don?t like it. I was made to feel very badly about his name when he was born. I love the sound of it, it?s strong." Jul. 15, 2019: Report as inappropriate
