Do you guys know any babies/kids named Leo? We're considering it, but I'm scared it might be getting popular. I don't personally know any Leo's, but it's supposedly in the top 100.

I can't think of any Leo's off the top of my head. Here's the info from social security website. It's 134 this year, but does seem to be growing in popularity from year to year, but still not all that popular

I don't think I know any named Leo or anyone with a child with that name. What name are you considering for a girl?

Martha Josephine (to go by Marti Jo). Martha was my husband's mom's name. She passed last year. And Josephine was my very glamorous great aunt.

I love that girls name! I don't think I know any babies named Leo. I know a 4 or 5 year old named Leo but that is it.

Thanks! We were thinking Leopold Whitman, but calling him Leo. Leopold after the James Joyce novel Ulysses, and Whitman after the father of American poetry, the captain himself, Walt Whitman.

We also considered using my maiden name as a first name. Phelan (pronounced Fay-len).

Don't know any personally but I do really love that name. DH always vetoes it but I think Leopold is awesome. Also love the name Josephine and I'm kinda hoping DS who's named Joseph will name his daughter that one day. Probably won't, haha.

My BFF in grade/middle school was named Leo, his full name was Leonard but to this day everyone has called him Leo.

Oh and don't worry about time running out...you have until you get discharged from the hospital...believe me I know!! Our babies didnt have names for a day.

I don't know any boys named Leo. And I think Leopold Whitman is a great name! And Leo is super cute.

I knew a Leo back in high school about 9 years ago. Haven't met another Leo since. So I don't think that name is that popular
