Wonder how you pronounce Leonie? Le-oh-knee? Lee-knee?
LOVE the boys' list. Oddly enough, most of my guilty pleasure boy names that I can't use because DH hates them are on this list. Must be because I'm of German descent and DH isn't! Leon is one of my all time favorites.
In German, Leonie is pronounced LAY-oh-nee. I think it's quite pretty in German but sadly less so in English.
I have mentioned that my husband is German, and we are naming our son Daniel. In German, it is spelled the same, but pronounced DAHN-yell. We needed a name that was quite similar in both the US and Germany.
