Great name!

I love Leo, no questions about that - its my top boys name

For some reason my DH feels it is too short as Leo and needs some sort of extension so Leo becaome the nickname rather than the full name

i woudl prefer Leonardo to Leopold, but we're not Italian so not sold on using that either.

Personally Id be happy to stick with Leo?!

It's a yes from me.  Family name for us so quite 'used to it'.  I like a bit of pretension in the full name with a zappy NN.   You have that with Leopold, NN Leo.  Old traditional name too. I like that.

No!

#22 frozie

I love it.  We were tossing it around with our last but ended up whittling our list down to Leonardo or Theodore.  DS ended up 'looking' like a Theodore so we went with that.  DS1 was disappointed as he really wanted a little brother called Leo.. LOL

Love it, although King Leopold of Belgium was apparently a bit of an a*se, but I'm not sure everyone would have that association, anyway?

For me it brings up an image of a military general from Prussia.
