Leda is a rare and beautifully simple feminine name. The name has Greek origins, and is thought to possibly mean “woman” or “happy.” In Greek mythology, Leda was a woman of great beauty who was seduced by Zeus in the form of a swan—a subject of many Renaissance paintings. Leda went on to become a Spartan queen, becoming the mother to the famed Helen of Troy. Your little Leda can take great pride in the roots of their name, growing up to champion their beliefs and live a happy and fulfilling life.
