  1. I love the name infact i am a leona. The name leona means a lioness, strength, power, authority, determination, born leader and caring for peole u love like how a lioness cares for her cubs.

  2. Strong girl names are taking over the stage, including Matilda, Leona, Hallie (American short form for Harriet) and Camilla

  3. I named my daughter Leona because that’s my middle name. Tradition is best I think.

  4. We picked this name because it was my husband’s grandma’s name, and we really love it!
