Definitely better when pronounced the Spanish way leo nor instead of the English way lenn or which I find quite ugly.

its the portuguese variant of Eleanor, and its SUPER popular in Portugal (currently #2).

portuguese variant of Eleanor, not Leona...

This is actually the Spanish version of Eleanor. I don't know about Leona; it could be that as well.

Can't nameberry just describe the name history of each name? Princess Leonor of Spain is a notable modern bearer.

mother_dragons Says:


It is the Spanish version of Eleanor- well, kind of. Eleanor in Spanish is Eleonora, and that transitioned to Leonor (or that's what I've heard). Either way, it can't be the Spanish version of Leona since that's already a word in Spanish- "lioness"

Lovely Name, one of my favourites. It's a Spanish and Portuguese name and very popular in the latter country. However I think it is a version of Eleanor / Eleonore instead of Leona.
