|"What do you mean|
she's come up with another name???"
So, "Leo" is actually a nickname... it is short for Leonidas. Which brings me to my real point: this isn't his only nickname.
Ohhh, no siree!
Little Leonidas has many names that have sprung from my mouth over the last nine months.
Let's see how many I can remember, shall we?
- Big Stretcher
- Ferocious Tiger-Cat/Tiger-Kitty
- Mr. Fuzzy Cheeks
So far, he only has three:
Leonidas Viggo Baggins
Leonidas is after the Spartan king, Leonidas.
Viggo is after Viggo Mortensen who, according to the LOTR extras, used to headbutt his costars all of the time. Well, Leo sure likes to headbutt, and so I thought Viggo would be an appropriate extra name.
And Baggins. Well, Baggins is obviously a Lord of the Rings reference, and it is so I can say, "Of course he does, he's a Baggins!"
I'm only slightly obsessed, okay? Slightly...
Leo is turning into Leo: The Cat of 1,000 Names.
And oh, yes, "Brian" will make it in there somewhere...
