Leontine Origin and Meaning

The name Leontine is a girl's name of French origin meaning "lion".
Leontine is the French form of a name that's more familiar by its spelling variation Leontyne, the name made famous by opera diva Price. An obscure choice, Leontine nevertheless feels right for our lion-name-crazed moment.
