The first element of this name is either derived from Greek λεων (leon) meaning "lion" or from Attic Greek λεώς (leos) meaning "the people" (see Leos). The second element is derived from either the Greek noun φρόνις (phronis) meaning "prudence, wisdom" or the Greek verb φρονέω (phroneo) meaning "to think" as well as "to be minded". Both words are ultimately derived from the Greek noun φρήν (phren) meaning "midriff" as well as "mind, intellect, wits".This name was borne by a Greek tyrant from the 5th century BC, who ruled over Rhegium and Messana.
