Leopold "Butters" Stotch is one of the main supporting characters in later South Park seasons. However, his first name is rarely mentioned, and he almost always goes by "Butters".

In the movie "Kate and Leopold", Leopold is one of the title characters. This is a very good movie.

Leopold I of the Belgiuims (Prince Leopold George Christian Frederick of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld, later of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha)(b. Coburg, 16 December 1790 - d. Laeken/Laken, 10 December 1865) was from 21 July 1831 the first king of Belgium, or, more correctly, King of the Belgians, according to the constitution of that country. He was the founder of the Belgian line of the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.

He was the uncle of Queen Victoria of England and was the reason she married Albert, Prince COnsort.

Listen to the German pronunciation of Leopold here:

I find it hideous with the ending, which also makes it hopelessly old-fashioned and rather elitist or pretentious-sounding.

Leopold II - Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire (1747-1792), son of Maria Theresa of Austria and older brother of Marie Antoinette of France.

A sort-of famous bearer of this name is the character Leopold Reynolds from Agatha Christie's Poirot novel, Hallowe'en Party (1969, but set in the 1930's). And the character gets murdered... But apart from this, I think it's really quite a nice name, and Leo is a great nickname. :)

I absolutely adore this name; it's sophisticated and strong sounding, but not too over-bearing, not too mention it has great nicknames (Leo or Poldie). And in response to the previous commenter, what's so bad about sounding upper-class? We need less 'Hunter's and 'Skylar's in this world!
