Leopold and there was no big deal about it. KLII just brought the name there, I guess. But you will have to deal with the fact that your child shares a name with a man who administered the killing of more people than Hitler.Wren (03.08), Estella (05.10), Blair (10.11), and Yves (12.13).

Leopold is a fairly traditional name in Europe and in francophone countries (including African countries), so I have to disagree that the Belgian king is the only association with the name. Stalin was a mass murderer too and there are plenty of young boys who share his first name, Joseph.
That being said it's a pretty versatile name so he could easily go by Leo or Lee or Poldi if the associations ever became problematic.
I think it's a terrific name, although it feels somehow odd with your sibset. Leopold feels ancient/royal/elegant/European, while Zelda and Dashiell a have a more modern/vintage/hipster/American vibe, as do most of your other names except maybe Bruno and Michael.
I love Maynard, BTW - terrific meaning and John Maynard Keynes is a great namesake.Arabella, Thibault, Sophia, Alfred, Eleanor, Rémi, Charlotte, Achille, Olivia, Clement, Elizabeth, Frederick, Maud, Benedict, Adèle.

I'm Danish and I know a little Leopold August. I love Leopold by the way, have never been able to fully digest Leonardo, so Leopold is my ultimate Leo-name. I think Leopold sounds great with Zelda and Dashiell
A few (Scandinavian/Danish) suggestions:
And I totally second Ottilie's suggestion of Leopold Villads (I know quite a few people who would swoon over this combination) and Leopold BrorExporting old Danish names as well as Greenlandic names and sibling names
