NAME ROOT:
(*LEWA(N)- *HARDUZ / *HARDU- > LEONHARD) (Ó LEANNáIN)
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
LEōN (Λέων)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Germanic name of a 6th century Frankish saint “Leonhard”, composed of two elements: The Ancient Germanic “*lewa(n)-” (Ancient Greek: Leōn “Λέων”; Latin: leō / leōnis) (lion) plus “*harduz / *hardu-” (hard, strong, brave, valiant, powerful one). In turn, the name means “strong as the lion, brave lion, bold as a lion”. Leonard is also an Irish origin surname, from the Gaelic “O'Leannain”, consisting of the prefix "O" (descendant of) and the suffix Leannan (lover). The oldest public records of the surname appear in 1272 in Huntingdonshire, England, and in 1479 in Ulm, Germany. 1) Leonard of Noblac is a Frankish saint closely associated with the town and abbey of Saint-Léonard-de-Noblat, in Haute-Vienne, in the Limousin region of France. The feast day is traditionally celebrated on November 6. 2) Saint Leonardo Murialdo (1828–1900) was an Italian priest from Turin who established the Congregation of Saint Joseph - also known as the Murialdines. He was canonized in 1970.
