What do you think of Leandro as a boy's name? It's listed on Mumsnet's Baby Name Finder.

Which middle name do you prefer with Leandro:
Leandro Pax (Latin for peace)
Leandro James
or
Leandro Gian (pronounced John)

Our surname is one syllable and rhymes with Day.

Thanks for your input!

Katie price ex

As ashamed as I am to admit this, the first thing that came into my head was 'isn't that the name of Jordan's husband?'.

It's a bit knee trembly Mills & Boon hero for me. I love Leo though.

Yes Leo is
Much better. Also why are you spelling john as gian?

First thought here was that walking amoeba KP was engaged to.

I prefer Leonardo tbh.

It's a nice enough name but also made me think of Jordan/Katie price.

I prefer Leo, followed by Leonardo.

Oh and like James the most from your mn choices.

How about Leo James?

I didn't know about KP's ex. I know a Cuban Leandro. He is a nice little boy!

I like Leandro as well as Leonardo.

I had no idea that Katie Price was engaged to a Leandro... does that really matter. Doubt a Leandro born now would have a clue about that as he grows up...!

James has become THE default middle name these days, it seems. I like the meaning of Pax!

Prefer Alejandro or Leo.
Leandro sounds too close to Leanne therefore feminine, for me.

Opps, sorry but I thought it was a bit girly too.
I like leon though.

I like it. I know nothing about Katie Price.

sounds chavy and at my kids school they would get bullied unless they were very cool

I like it. Especially if you have a Latin connection.

I really like it

Leandro Pax is great, it flows really well and Pax has a lovely meaning.

James is not unusual as a middle name, though it is a classic and I like it.

Not keen on Gian and I wouldn't have thought of pronouncing it "John". I do like John though!

I taught a gorgeous leandro. Everyone will soon forget about Jordan's ex fiancé. I wouldn't let that worry you!

Katie Price, but that connection won't be around in a year or two.
