Comments for LEONA:

I think this is a pretty name - it's not totally weird but sounds slightly exotic. My friend has a sister named this, and I also have another friend who is called this, but she spells her name Leeona, which makes it a bit more unique, I guess!

Leo = lion; Leona in most texts means "brave" or "brave-hearted".

Well, this is my middle name; I've never been very fond of it. Everyone else seems to like it, but it reminds me of old people, perhaps because this name belonged to two of my great-grandmothers.

It's a lovely name, but I associate it with Leona Helmsley, who was basically famous for being rich and very mean to her servants and workers, and she had a very arrogant attitude towards people who weren't rich. She herself had basically become massively rich by marrying a billionaire.

Leona and Elsa would be good names for twins born under the star sign Leo.

I first heard this name when I was around nine, and I thought it was so cool. Now, though I do prefer the less conventional and common Leonie, I still love Leona. Leona has beauty, grace and charm, and I love how it means "lioness". It's gorgeous whether you pronounce it lee-O-na or LE-o-na or le-O-na, though I slightly prefer the first pronunciation, as I like names that have a "ee" and stressed "o" sound - Leona, Iona, Fiona, Ilona. It reminds me of a young woman who's intelligent and independent; a lioness.
