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".

The beautiful songstress that won UK's 2006 singing competion known as The X Factor was named Leona Lewis. She was the first female singer to win.

In Germany, the name is sometimes pronounced LAY-o-nah, based on the correct German prounciation of the German name Leonie, LAY-o-nee. [noted -ed]

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.

This name also exists in Spanish, Italian, Czech, and Polish, among other languages. I like this name very much.

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.

This is one of those names that I have always loved, even when I was younger. I have no clue where I heard it, but I remember one of my favorite toys being named Leona. I would seriously consider it for a child.

Everyone seems to love this name, but I'm going to disagree. It just doesn't sound feminine. It's Leon with an A, not a girls name.

My name is Leona and I think that this name is pretty in every way. It is so beautiful. My mom and I love it and everyone who I meet loves it too.

Well, this is my name :) I appreciate the fierceness behind it. As a kid I hated it because everyone said it wrong and no one could remember it! Haha Lee is a great nickname and it worked until I was older in age. It really is beautiful and unique! People still struggle with remembering what it is, but it's not a big deal to me anymore.

Teasing alert: "Oh, no, it's Leona!"

When I was younger I had a Webkinz Signature Persian Cat named Leona. It has a refined sound to me, so it fit her perfectly.
