Comments and insights on the name Leo

Could be short for Leona, Leonie, Leonor, Leonora, or Leo could stand on its own.

I know a bunch of boys named Leo, and honestly it just doesn't seem right for a girl. It's such a strong, masculine name – it means "lion" – that it really seems weird for a girl name.

Ole and Leo are anagrams of each other; they share they same letters.

I never heard of a girl named Leo!
