Love this name and my first son will be named this. Perfect nickname is Leo and I'm a Leo, I think if he's born at the same time it would be perfect!

A friend of mine has a little brother whose name is Leonardo Vincent, his dad is nice but he's a really crazy English professor whose been in alcohol detox more times than anyone cares to count. Named his oldest son James Joyce, then Henry David, and Leonardo Vincent. Their mother was a math professor, I'm not sure if she ever caught the references.

Even though another commented already mentioned him, I'm going to do it again because he's definitely had an influence on this name.

Leonardo DiCaprio, 3-times Acadamy Award nominated and Global Award Winning actor, most famous for his role as the male protagonist Jack Dawson of the Highest Grossing movie (worldwide) of all time, "Titanic."

(also famous for his portrayals: Romeo Montague in
"William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet", Frank Abagnale Jr. In "Catch Me If You Can", Amsterdam Vallon in "Gangs of New York", Howard Hughes in "The Aviator", Billy Costigan in "The Departed", and Danny Archer in "Blood Diamond".)

"Titanic" was released in 1997. And in 1998 the name Leonardo jumps 100 places up on the top names list and has yet to go below since. Hmm. Coincidence? I think not!

I'm not that humongous a DiCaprio fan, it's just that the man is a talented actor and there is NO WAY that the recent popularity of the name has nothing to do with the "Leo-Mania" spawned since "Titanic"--If proof is needed:

"The move from 'star' to 'superstar' came when DiCaprio played Jack Dawson in Titanic (1997). Over the course of the next few years he would become a household name worldwide, synonymous with labels such as 'teenage heart-throb' and sex symbol. With a status that spawned fantasy crushes and hysteria worldwide. People Magazine voted him among the Most Beautiful People on earth on numerous occasions. At the peak of his celebrity in 1998, DiCaprio fronted scores of magazine covers ranging from Vanity Fair to Rolling Stone, and was once the most searched for personality in the early years of the Internet." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonardo_DiCaprio#Superstardom_.26_.27Leo-Mania.27)

Titanic Teen fans grew up and named their children Leonardo. After DaVinci, DiCaprio is without a doubt the second most famous bearer of this name.

I can't believe nobody has said anything about Leonardo Da Vinci? Leonardo is probably the most famous person to carry this name. I guess this goes to show how much people care and know about History these days.

To the poster above me. If you haven't noticed, DaVinci is mentioned in the description of the name so you mentioning him again is kind of useless.

I like this name because I've always liked da Vinci's paintings. However, I don't like the association with the highly overrated actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
