The Leo Namer

You’re the boss, Leo, or at least you want to be the boss of the baby name process. Sure, you value your partner’s input, but really, you are the one who sets the rules.

Ideally, you’re searching for a name that manages to stand out while being almost universally loved. It’s a tough balance to strike — an unusual name has greater visibility, but is less likely to be cooed over, while a more popular name may get the reaction you desire, but blends in more. You may ask your friends and family what they think of the names on your list to gauge the public opinion.

Leo, you want your child’s name to elicit oohs and ahhs and inspire other parents — but not so much so that they end up using your uncommon choice. You understand that a unique baby name highlights you as a unique parent, which may not be the first thing you consider, but certainly isn’t the last, either.

You’re interested in the practice of naming a child — some may say more than the result — and if it were up to you, it would be rife with impassioned debates and discussions about your choices. Your child needs a great story about how they were named, and "Aria was just the name we agreed on" is not going to cut it.

Once you do choose a name, start prepping for the big reveal. Whether it’s a name reveal party or an eye-catching birth announcement, you want the world to learn your baby’s name in a bold and aesthetic fashion.

Ultimately, Leo, it’s most important to you that your child is proud of their name. No doubt you will be able to teach them how to carry their perfectly-chosen moniker with your signature Leo pride.

Leo Name Style

Leo, the names on your list are the kind that everybody loves, but not all are brave enough to use. You choose attention-grabbing names, whether that be by way of many syllables, unexpected letters, or a name that’s just plain rare.

You understand that a name makes an impression before even meeting someone, and you want your children’s names to project warmth, confidence, and individuality. 

With your sense of style, there’s no question that your child’s name will be chic and stunning. So even if you do choose a name that’s on the more unusual side, it will be eminently likable and fit in with the current fashions. You’re not necessarily opposed to familiar names, but if you go with something more common, it will feel distinctive rather than belonging to a popular family of names.

Leo, you’re drawn to energetic names with bright sounds and bouncy rhythms. These lively names have natural appeal, so don’t be surprised when everyone starts complimenting your choice.

Any extra layer of drama is appreciated by you, Leo, so you may choose a longer name that comes with an exciting or unique nickname, such as Waverly called Wavy, or Santino called Tino. You may also consider a bold middle name for your child, or even two middle names to double up on the fun.

Names a Leo Might Like

Bold but beloved names like Clementine and Joaquin, along with stylish names that fly under the radar — think Nairobi and Marcello — may charm you, Leo, with their distinctiveness and warmth.
