Leandro is a boy's name that means "lion man." This name is an alternative version of the name Leander, so it's perfect for anyone looking for a mythologically inspired name. The myth of Hero and Leander tells the story of Leander, who fell in love with Hero, a priestess of Aphrodite. The pair lived on opposite sides of the Hellespont. Every night, Leander would swim across the waters to spend time with Hero, with a light at the top of Hero's tower guiding his way. Their romance unfolded over a warm summer, and the pair planned to stop meeting over the winter as the waters would be too rough to travel across. One night, Leander saw the torch lighting in Hero's tower and so he swam across. A strong gust of wind blew out the light, leading to Leander losing his way and drowning. On seeing his body, Hero jumped out of the tower and died to be with him.
