Meaning:Holly garden
Lesli has spawned from the gender-neutral Leslie into a girl's name, also of Scottish origin, meaning "holly garden." Baby Lesli can easily connect to their roots back home in bonnie Scotland, with the evergreen plant and its bright red berries growing throughout. But there's nothing humorous about all that, unlike with Leslie Nielsen! His comedic genius in Airplane! and The Naked Gun movies solidified his enduring recognition as "the Olivier of spoofs." Leslie received stars on the Canadian and Hollywood Walks of Fame and was so committed to the cause that even his gravestone features a joke! Leslie Nielsen: much funnier than a holly garden. But less beautiful. Someday, baby Lesli will agree.
