Baby Names Based on Zodiac Sign – Leo

Picking a name you think will suit your baby-to-be is hard. Technically, you spend every moment together during pregnancy, but your child will have a whole personality you’ve yet to discover.

Of course, you won’t know your baby’s date of birth until she/he actually born, and it’s certainly not unusual for a new arrival to make a surprise early entrance — or keep the world waiting. Plus, your baby could be born at the turn of two zodiac signs. So check out names for the sign before or after birth-date as well, just for safety.

So here we go with the names based on the zodiac sign. For every zodiac sign, I prepared for you articles full of names.

Every baby born between July 23 and August 22 will be in the sign of Leo with the element of the fire.


People born under the sign of Leo are natural born leaders. They are dramatic, creative, self-confident, dominant and extremely difficult to resist, able to achieve anything they want to in any area of life they commit to. There is a specific strength to a Leo and their “king of the jungle” status. Leo often has many friends for they are generous and loyal. Self-confident and attractive, this is a Sun sign capable of uniting different groups of people and leading them as one towards a shared cause, and their healthy sense of humor makes collaboration with other people even easier.

Leo – the Lion in the Cave The story of the Lion always speaks of bravery. This is an animal fearless and impossible to challenge, hurt or destroy, their only weaknesses being fear and aggression towards those they confront. Living in a cave, a Lion always needs to have one, nesting and finding comfort in hard times. However, they should never stay there for long. With their head high, they have to face others with dignity and respect, never raising a voice, a hand, or a weapon, bravely walking through the forest they rule.
