37 Leo-Inspired Baby Names For Your Little Lion Cub

It's really no surprise that the zodiac sign for July 23 through August 22 is represented by a lion, because nothing brings out your roaring fierceness than the scorching summer heat. And if you happen to be in your third trimester during this particularly warm part of the year, then you know that high temperatures can really take a toll on your overall mood. So why not take your mind off the weather and think about baby name options? Whether your child will be born under the sign or you just like their traits, there are plenty of Leo-inspired baby names for you to choose from.

Leo, the fifth sign of the zodiac, is definitely associated with the powerful, and passionate "king of the jungle" type traits of the lion, but they are also known for their generosity and loyalty. Leo is ruled by the sun and is a fire sign, so their fiery personality flourishes in creative, social, and challenging environments. Lastly, playing off of the lion, sun, and fire, the color associated with Leo is a golden orange.

There's no guarantee how little or how much your cute cub will follow in the paw prints of Leo the lion, but you can still be inspired by all the meaningful qualities of the Leo zodiac sign for your baby's name.


Just like lions, Leos take care of their peeps and that's something they pride themselves in. Get it? A pack of lions is called a pride. You're welcome.
