Thoughts?

I went to primary school with a girl of this name and always thought it was a beautiful name. It's lovely with the mn Charlotte. Go for it!

It sounds great, but I would have pronounced it Lee-oh-ni.

If you don't mind that you will probably have to keep correcting people then go for it.

Lovely name but I would also prefer Lee-oh-ni

predictive text always brings it up as Looney

I love the name Leonie but Charlotte is my first choice with Lottie as a Nn.

Not too sure of the sex! Can I add Alexender James or Scott James Sinclair?

Too poncey?

All family names.

Alexander!! doh!

lovely smile

Alexander lovely too although never been convinced by Scott.....

Alexander and Charlotte are lovely

Scott of the Antartic is my great-great-great uncle. Hence the name being handed down but it is used as a first name in my family.

I have Katherine as one my names as she was of the one Scott of the Antartic aunts.

My brother is Scott so I am considering it.

Scott Alexander 'Suncottage' a very Scottish name

Wow! What a claim to fame! You've got to use it in that case.

Léonie is absolutely lovely (probably one of the names of the daughters I never had).

I really like Leonie as well, if I had a baby girl tomorrow that's what she'd be called: Leonie Katherine grin

I love Leonie, one of my absolute favourite names. I would pronounce lee-oh-nee as well, but it's nice either way. I like Leona as well.

I would be inclined to make Scott the middle name personally. Alexander Scott sounds good.
