I really like this name! It sounds very masculine. But if I was given a name like Leonora, I'd probably use Leo as a girl name.

I love the name Leo. It sounds modern to me, not overused, and it has the same feeling as the name Jack.

By far, this is the most widely-accepted of the zodiac-sign names. But I wouldn't use it myself; I find it too common. That aside, it's not bad.
-- seraphine_eternal  6/15/2008
I also like Leo as a girls' name - like, for instance, as a short form of Leona or Leonie. I think it would suit a brave, strong, determined girl just as much as it would suit a boy.

I don't care for this name. I prefer Leon. It's too common and people seem to think of it as a nickname, when in fact it's a given name. If you like it that much, just use Leo on its own.

I'm bringing Leo back for a girl. I'm kidding! But it's kind of awesome, even late 19th and early 20th Century Americans used male names for females. Our generation didn't start it.

The Saints Day for Saint Leo the Great, is 18th of February for Orthodox Christians and 10th of November for Catholics. This is a good short first name for a boy, with plenty of history and suits any age. One of my children is named Leo.

I like it, when it's pronounced LEH-o.

I am warming up to the name Leo. Before falling asleep last night, I thought it would be such a cute little family of mine to have a little daughter Anna, and a baby Leo. So I like that combination now! And when I woke up, it occurred to me Leo Tolstoy wrote 'Anna Karenina'. Still, Anna and Leo make a cute sibset!

This is such a cool name; timeless, too! It'd be really cool to give this name to a son born under the Leo zodiac.
... Though in this day and age, with all the little Liams running around, you'd have to put extra emphasis on the 'o' when calling for your kid on the playground.

I like Leo as a full name, Leonard is kind of ugly to me. Leonardo isn't that bad though.

This name is absolutely adorable, but it seems like it's getting trendy. I hope it doesn't become too popular, it's a great name but sometimes names get ruined by becoming too common!
