NN Leo

Is it pronounced Lee-on-dray or Lee-own-dray?

I prefer Le-on-dray, although I can't say I am overly keen on it. Why not just go for Leo straight off? I reckon it's just as common if not more common than the longer names.

It is pronounced Le-on-dray and I want a less common name, aha...

QueenMolotov Fri 13-Nov-15 11:13:43

I like it smile

I also like Leon.

MitzyLeFrouf Fri 13-Nov-15 11:23:52

I'd assume it was French and would pronounce it (or try to at least!) as lee-on-druh.

I prefer plain old Leo.

Sophronia Fri 13-Nov-15 12:03:03

I prefer Leandre.

I'd assume it was Lay-on-druh.

Leopold? Leo by itself is very nice though.

I love Leo but really dislike Leondre, it reminds me of Lenor for some reason.

Glitterspy Fri 13-Nov-15 12:46:07

Sorry if that post sounded unhelpful! Have you thought about Leonie?

EmpressKnowsWhereHerTowelIs Fri 13-Nov-15 12:48:32

Is it male or female? Guessing male if you're thinking Leo but not certain.

Makes me think of Leonidas chocolates.

It doesn't sound like a name.

mumblebumble Fri 13-Nov-15 12:51:48

I don't like it, sorry. Prefer Leonardo or Leon with Leo for short.

SirChenjin Fri 13-Nov-15 12:54:26

Don't like it, sorry.

ICantSpellNoffink Fri 13-Nov-15 12:57:20

It sounds like a American made up name name. I'm not a fan of it but it's ok. I would assume the pronunciation would emphasis the dray sound at the end.

I prefer Leander or Leollan (although Leollan sounds made up too smile )

celtictoast Fri 13-Nov-15 13:02:04

Or Leonard

Lee Andre

Peter Andre's quiet brother

I agree with Icantspellnoffink sounds Jerry Springer to me.

Leo though I like!

Emmmder2015 Fri 13-Nov-15 15:41:31

I know a Leandre. It's not my favorite name but I don't hate it.

It is one that he'll spend his life having to spell out and be mispronounced, unless he lives in France. I imagine it would be similar (apart from if he was in France, where he'd also need to spell it out and have it mispronounced) if it was Leondre.

PurpleDaisies Fri 13-Nov-15 15:45:09

I don't like it either sorry. To me it sounds like you were stuck between Leon and Andre so made something up.

I really like Leo as a name in it's own right though.

doceodocere Fri 13-Nov-15 16:38:30

I like it but find the pronunciation issues off-putting. Leander is easier and you could still use Leo as a nn.

EElisavetaOfBelsornia Fri 13-Nov-15 16:46:12

Wasn't he the character in the first season of The Wire who got involved in drug dealing and ended up murdered in prison?

Sounds African American. Like an nfl or nba player.
