Do they ever get 'Lee'?

Leo is pretty short, I've not heard it shortened round here

Quartz2208 Fri 23-Jun-17 22:18:48

I know 3 (Leo. Leonardis and Leopold) all Leo never Lee

Soslowmo Fri 23-Jun-17 22:22:36

I know 3 born recently, seems to be very in at the moment.

I know the most darling Leo. I know quite a few others and none of them have ever been called Lee.

Really love the name Leo, I wanted a ds just so I could use this name! I don't know any personally, just a Leon, but I can't imagine it would get shortened to Lee!

I know 2 Leo's and a Leon, all late teens and never Lee. I like it

My nephew is Leo and he's never been referred to as Lee

indigox Sat 24-Jun-17 01:39:50

I know one, it's never shortened.

Susiethetortoiseshellcat Sat 24-Jun-17 08:25:59

I've met loads at baby groups in the last year. All seem to be called Leo.

ColourfulOrangex Sat 24-Jun-17 09:00:57

My cousin is Leo, never shortened to Lee

BillywigSting Sat 24-Jun-17 09:03:51

I know two Leo's and they are both Leo not Lee. They're both really lovely boys too so I only have happy connections to that name and as such I love it! (if we ever have another boy Leo will certainly be on the list)

My nephew is a Leo. It's never occurred to any of us that it might turn into Lee.

secretnutter Sat 24-Jun-17 09:11:27

My DS1 is a Leo (Leonardo) it's never anything other than Leo, we love it, a little different but not too much so!! X

My best friend is called Leo, he's 22. I don't think anyone's ever called him Lee (though I'd like to see his face if they tried!) grin

squishysquirmy Sat 24-Jun-17 15:36:30

I know one, a toddler, and he is always called Leo never Lee. He does receive an above average amount of lion themed presents though. grin
Its a lovely name in mt opinion; a little bit unusual but not so unusual as to be weird.

My cat! Used it as I knew I wouldn't have any more children- I would have called a boy Leo, it's a lovely name.

BestIsWest Sun 25-Jun-17 19:48:36

And my dog! We never call him Lee. Leonardo or Leopold sometimes.

RideOn Sun 25-Jun-17 20:37:16

Yes and no they don't ever get Lee and I would never have connected it as a nn

OSETmum Sun 25-Jun-17 20:41:58

I know lots, it's very popular at the moment. I'd never even made the connection between Leo and Lee.
