Set baby up to be king of the playground with the name Leonel, a boy’s name that means “young lion,” or a young king of the beasts. Leonel is the Spanish equivalent of the French Lionel, and has a flavorful, exotic sound to it. It can also be shortened to the nickname Leo, a trendy masculine name. Apart from its association with the big cats of the African savannah, Leo can also refer to the astrological sign of the same name and is a synchronistic choice for baby born in late August or early September.
