This beautiful baby girl’s name has all but been forgotten. It’s popularity began back in the late 1800’s, but we do not see this as a typical old ladies kind of name, do you? Leona gives off a sense of radiance and self confidence which are qualities we hope for in our little girls. This name is vintage, even Victorian. It is classy and traditional, all while being unique. In other words, this name has a little bit of every world.
Leona means lioness. How fitting is that when we hope our girls grow up to be strong women?! Its origin is French, as it is the female version of Leon. We find this to be a great name for your little lioness. But, be careful, it is bound to become popular once again!
