"THIS IS SPARTA!" Someone with this name will probably get that all the time. It's a nice name, but it's been temporarily ruined by the movie 300.

How can anyone forget King Leonidas of Sparta! A name that will live in history. LEONIDAS=IMMORTALITY!

I have yet to see the movie "300", but I have read the story of Leonidas and can't help myself from thinking what a sad, heroic and immortal story it is. I love the name because of the history about king Leonidas.

This name is so pompous and elaborate, it's ridiculous. I can't imagine calling someone Leonidas (lee-oh-NIE-das). They'll most likely get called Leo anyway, so why not go with Leonard, Leonardo, Leon, or just plain old Leo?

Love this name- I'd probably use the nickname Leo for the most part, but since I think Leo is too short of a name on its own, Leonidas would be my favorite long Leo- name to get to the nickname. It has great meaning and is deep-rooted in history. As to previous comments, I've never watched 300 so I don't know how much association this name would have to the movie, but I personally don't think the name is ruined because of that association!
