    Leopold vs Leonidas

    Which do you prefer Leopold (Lay-oh-pold) or Leonidas (Lay-oh-nigh-dis)?

    I like how uncommon Leopold is (it isn't even in the top 1000 whereas Leonidas is 888) but I love the greek and Shakespearean roots of Leonidas (Leonatus, a variation of Leonidas, is featured in Cymbeline) and the nickname of Leon.

    Hypothetical siblings would be Atlas, Persephone and Cordelia.

    I prefer Leopold.
    To me Leonidas sounds like a disease. ("I'm sorry to tell you, but he contracted a serious case of leonidas.")

    I prefer Leonidas. Leopold, while I can understand the appeal, just sounds hopelessly stuffy to me.
