Leontina is a striking girl’s name of French origin. This distinctive name means “lioness,” after the powerful, family-oriented queens of the jungle. The lionesses in a pride are the ones who do all the hunting, look after the cubs, and generally keep the pride together. They make for an inspiring source! Your baby Leontina is sure to emulate the regality and prowess commonly associated with their namesake. Plus, there are a bunch of roar-some nickname options, like Leo, Tina, and Lonnie.
