I love the name Leopold. It's a really strong sounding name and has a fresh Germanic sound to it and has the cute nickname of Leo too :-)

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!

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