Leandre is a gender-neutral name of Greek origin with a roaring story to tell. This French form of Leader, meaning "lion man," refers to the beautiful love story of Hero and Leander. Each night, young Leander would swim across the Hellespont to reach Hero, who lit a lamp in her tower to guide him. Although their tale ends much like Romeo and Juliet, their sweet summer romance still resonates. Some other forms include Leopold, Leo, Leonie, and Leon.
