Leander is both a girl’s and boy’s name with Greek origins. Not only does this name sound cool but it also has the brilliant meaning of “lion man.” In Greek mythology, Leander was a powerful figure who would swim across the Hellespont, now modern-day Turkey, to his beloved hero, a priestess of Aphrodite. Leander is a fabulous alternative to the common Greek-related Alexander. The name is currently a hit within Norway and resides proudly in their baby name charts. Other variations of Leander include Leandro which gives it a Spanish twist.
