ORIGIN: Greek
POPULARITY: 512
Make a roar when you give your son a name that means “lion” in Greek. Leon is popular in many countries because of its association with the powerful and elegant animal (like Mufasa from “The Lion King"). In the US, it has been on the baby-name charts since the 19th century but managed to avoid a trendy phase. It’s solid and strong, and the middle name of the youngest male Jolie-Pitt, Knox Leon.
