Leopold basically is a Germanic name, made up of two steams, similar to Germanic names. The primary section of the name is linked to the Latin term "Leo" which means "lion", where as the second section is of the name is of Germanic origin and means "brave".

So the name initially meant "as brave as a lion". The name has been applied since the 5th century. Quiet a few well known people have shared this name for example, Leopold I, who were the primary king of Belgium. Leopold I was said to be the organizer of the Belgian line of the house of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.

Leopold I was the youngest son of Franz Frederick Anton, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld and was born on 21st July, 1831.
