Leopold is a boy's name of Old German origin with the glorious meaning of "brave people." It derives from the name Luitbald and is shared with some very famous people—both real and fictional. There's King Leopold of Belgium, who was Queen Victoria's favorite uncle, and also the compassionate character of Leopold Bloom, thought up by celebrated writer James Joyce in his book Ulysses. Those who grew up watching Meg Ryan rom-coms may also recall the film Kate and Leopold, which stared Ryan alongside dreamy Hugh Jackman. With a legacy like this, your little darling will grow to be not only a courageous person but also prone to hero-like acts of service.
