Le- names

"LE" baby names beginning or starting with Le- are used more often as feminine names.

These boy names reached the apex of their popularity during 1880-1889 (usage of 0.11%) and are almost as common today (usage 0.06%, down 45.2%), but with names like Lee, Leopold, Lenard, Leroy and Les falling out of style. The more fashionable names for newborns among these are Leonidas (#566), Lennox (#585), Leo (#97), Leandro (#784) and Leonardo (#114), and there is a rekindling in birth name popularity for Leo.
