The name Leonid is a boy's name of Russian origin meaning "lion". Leonid and is often added to lists like Russian Baby Boy Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "Build a sibling set together!".
From the experts:
This form got noticed as the first name of long-reigning Russian president Brezhnev; other bearers include playwright and short-story writer Andreyev, Leonid the Magnificent,a Russian performance artist on America's Got Talent, and Leonid McGill, the protagonist of a Walter Mosley private eye series. All in all, though, Leonid is not the most likely to join the pride of lion-related names here.
