Would you ever consider using this name for your baby boy?

From what I have found, this is a German name that means "lion strength".

Personally, I don't see anything wrong with this name at all, but I'm just not sure if it is really my style. If I do ever use it in the future, I think I would use it as a middle name rather than a first name.

So what do you think? Is it usable?

I would! I always think Italian when I hear the name though. DH is Italian so I tried to go the Italian boy route but he shot it down, but I LOVE it The only thing is I'm not crazy over Leo and could you see yourself shouting LEONARDO when he gets in trouble lol

I like it better than plain Leo, which feels incomplete to me. I prefer Leonidas, though.

I like just plain Leo better personally but I think Leonardo is handsome too.

While Leonardo is a very handsome name, I prefer just plain Leo.

I like it! I never liked Leonard. My favorite actress just named her baby boy Leonardo so I've warmed to Leonardo and Leo. Leopold is one of my favorites though. I also think Italian when I hear Leonardo!
