One day before I was even pregnant AJ annouced that if he had a son he'd like to call him Leonidas, I believe I wasn't too impressed at the time! He had just watched the film "300" with Gerard Butler and not only that had always been a fan of Greek Mythology and suchlike.
I thought no more of it really as it was not a revlevant converstaion being that we had no baby on the way
The conversation obviously came up again once we found out we were having a boy..... and after MUCH debate we did decide on Leonidas. It grew on me so much but I was still worried about having an "unusual" name. I was more than happy with Leo, it just took me weeks to decide between Leonidas, Leo Leon etc...
Randomly a deciding factor for me was at a friends baby's christening, there were bowls of "Leonidas" chocolates on the tables and I got really excited when I saw the name, at that point I realised that if I went with Leo and the name came up later, and living in Cyprus it surely would I would be really disappointed.
His middle name is Arthur, that was also the result of a debate, but a much smaller one! Arthur is the name of AJ's Poppa who he was really close to, and unfortunately I never got to meet.
