Thoughts on Leif??
So I've had Leif rolling around in my head for quite some time and I've decided that it could be a possible first name for my son. I especially love that its a Norse name and it has a nature feel to it (because of its obvious closeness to the word leaf). I also like that it is familiar in the same way that Viggo is; heard of but not used. Theo and I also love the Leif Ericson connection. We also just love the history of the name itself. However we are still a bit iffy about it because we haven't really asked anyone we know about it yet.
So I thought maybe you guys could give us a bit of feedback on Leif. Thanks!!
PS: We will be using the Scandinavian pronunciation: Layff- if we use it.Love, Claire

I really love the name Leif, especially with that pronunciation.
The only negative would be possibly being mispronounced as leaf, but I don't see that as a huge negative in the least since one correction would be a easy fix.Dayton.20.*Hopeful* Future Mom

I like it. Although people will constantly say "leaf". It's a good name, but I'm drawn to nature names
