You’d be hard-pressed to find a young male named Leslie these days, which is amazing because boys had a lock on the name for many decades. Then around the early 1950s, a seismic shift happened, and the girls took over. That’s how it remains today. The name has a lightness to it that makes it feel less gender-neutral and more feminine. Having a good laugh about female world dominance over the name: comedian Leslie Jones (“Saturday Night Live”) and actress-comedian Leslie Mann.
